In the field!
In the Department of Environmental Sciences we take field trips to different localities in the state. Examples are:
Two Water Treatment Plants for the city of Abilene
Wastewater Treatment Plant for the city of Abilene
Browning Ferris Industries Sanitary Landfill
Lake Ivie area south of Abilene.
Geosciences related field trips that we take. These go to:
Buffalo Gap/Coronado Camp area south of Abilene
North Central Texas mainly between Albany and Mineral Wells
Hill Country around Llano, Mason and Fredericksburg, Texas
Southwest Texas including the Davis Mountains and the Big Bend National Park
Also, there is an Environmental Chemistry field project. This is usually done at Kirby Lake or Lake Fort Phantom where students learn water sampling methods.
Finally, in a Biology class called Ecology, students often take a field trip to the Davis Mountains/Big Bend area in southwest Texas
