Palmer Research Center for Aquatic Resources

The Palmer Research Center for Aquatic Resources is located in Knox, Indiana beside Bass Lake. In the fall of 2005, Eldon and Elaine Palmer donated 4.5 acres of land at Bass Lake in Starke County and provided additional financial support to establish the Francis W. Palmer Center for Aquatic Resources in honor of Eldon’s father, Francis Palmer. Their contribution included an especially important tract of land completed the 10.15 acres of property at Bass Lake that was previously transferred to the Trustees of Purdue University by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. In 2010 the renovation of the Bass Lake hatchery house was completed and today it is occupied by faculty and staff of the Purdue Forestry and Natural Resources Department.
