What's there to do at LBS on your free time?
Free time activities (old)
LBS has a small rustic lakeside cottage that can be rented. It has no running water or electricity, but it is a perfect way to experience the beauty and serenity of Evo. The cottage also has its own sauna.
The Lamminjärvi-Halila Natura 2000 area is located about 3 km from LBS and well worth the visit. It is a good place for bird watching (ask John for a spotting scope) and the view from the top of the cliff is very beautiful.
The Station’s row boats and canoe can be used free of charge during your spare time. Please ask about lifejackets, keys and row boat availability from, Leena, John or Tiina.
Lighted ski trails are available close to the village of Lammi, and we also track trails near the station during the second last week of February. When the lake is frozen and ice conditions allow, skiing on the lake is also a fun activity. LBS has a few skis available that can be borrowed. Ask John for more information.
The station has 11 bicycles that visitors can borrow. Ask our staff for the bicycle lock combination and bicycle helmets.
The researcher sauna is held on most weeks on Tuesday evening beginning at 19:00. Ask the staff about men’s and women’s times.
The ping pong table is located in the basement of the Herrala dormitory. Please be sure to put it away after each use. There should be balls and rackets in Herrala, but ask John if you need a new ball.
The station has four frisbee golf baskets and frisbees. They usually can be found by the student dormitory's bicycle shelter.
