The Ecology and Natural Resource Teaching Area (or ENRTA) is located just minutes from campus, southwest of Easterwood Airport. Since 1947, it has provided a unique outdoor facility for teaching, research, and outreach in natural resources. The Range Area is a mosaic of 189 acres of forest, wetlands, savanna, and grasslands. We have a field lab with classroom, dry lab, shop, dirt lab, and storage space, which is fully stocked with tools, equipment, and vehicles which can be checked out by faculty, students, and staff for use in university projects.
