The Ecology and Natural Resource Teaching Area (ENRTA) is a biological field station managed by the Department of Rangeland, Wildlife, and Fisheries Management (RWFM), in collaboration with the Department of Ecology and Conservation Biology (ECCB). The mission of ENRTA is to provide teaching, research and outreach opportunities for the Texas A&M community and the citizens of the greater Bryan/College Station area.

ENRTA is located at 1183 Fishtank Road (see Location). It consists of 280 acres of primary use area, publicly accessible and available for teaching and research. The ENRTA also includes 665 acres of secondary use area, available on request for teaching and research (see ENRTA Map). Property access is allowed from dawn until dusk. Any access requests during nighttime hours should be coordinated with the Property Manager through our Contacts page. Learn about our Property Management activities on property as well as our Species Inventory.
