We present a study of the nearby isolated star forming region B62, a well-defined Bok globule in northern Ophiuchus. On large scales, we identify the H-alpha emission line stars, several of which are associated with compact reflection nebulae, together with two large Herbig-Haro flows, named HH 1000 and HH 1001. On small scales, we focus on the young stellar object IRAS 17130-2053 located near the center of the globule. This embedded Class I source is found to be a binary in our near-infrared images, and drives the bipolar Herbig-Haro flow HH 1000 as well as a molecular outflow. We present new interferometric observations by the Submillimeter Array and study the molecular environment in multiple dense gas tracers with high resolution.
