We have 2 field trips during this lab. All are mandatory.
Fairchild Tropical Botanical Gardens
(website here: www.fairchildgarden.org)
This will take place during your usual lab hours and will only last the duration of a regular lab. Transport is not provided, so you will need to make your own way there. Usually students choose to car pool.
Everglades National Park
(website here: Everglades National Park)
This field trip takes place on the weekend. You will be able to select either the Saturday or Sunday trip. Please note the dates in your schedule so that you can make arrangements as necessary. Transport will be provided from campus and it will be an all day trip (7am-6pm). We will take a bus through Everglades National Park, where we will stop periodically from the Ernest Coe Visitor Center all the way down to Flamingo, including a water walk ("sloughing") into a cypress dome.
