About Stark Pond and Wetlands Research Area
The pond, an original fixture of the Frank family farm purchased by Kent State University in 1967, was re-established as an EPA-approved wetland research area in 2007, a revitalization project initiated by former Kent State Stark dean, William Bittle. The update included the addition of indigenous plants and wildlife, along with a gazebo and walking path. The area serves as an outdoor learning and research classroom for students and faculty. On average, 1,400-5,000 gallons of pond water, continuously replenished by an underground spring, is used to hydrate the foliage on the 200-acre campus grounds.
