Outdoor Classrooms

GEP helps to manage several outdoor spaces on campus, and it enjoys access to several preserves that lie quite close to campus and beyond. We utilize these spaces frequently, providing an opportunity for students to get hands-on experience in field classes, research activities and internships involving environmental management and outdoor education.
