Ordwipedia is the interactive Ordway website created to enhance the visitor experience at Macalester College’s nearly 300-acre Katharine Ordway Natural History Study Area.

Ordwipedia (Ordway + Wikipedia) provides smart phone and web access to detailed biodiversity content and lists, a Google Earth field guide, and maps of the property.

 To enhance its educational value, all Macalester community members will be able to add to and edit the content of the site with future research and projects.
