Teaching at the Preserve

Large numbers of students use natural lands as part of their coursework. These field-based courses are largely in the natural sciences and include courses in areas such as ecology, evolution, botany, zoology, mycology, climatology, geology, limnology, and field techniques. The preserve is used annually by several Biology, Geography, Geological Sciences, HPER (Health, Physical Education, and Recreation), and SPEA (School of Public and Environmental Affairs) courses for field-based exercises.

The Dean of Faculties Office will provide a $6,000 grant for course development focused on the RTP. Please contact the RTP director for details.

Prospective Teaching Activities. If you are interested in teaching at the RTP, please fill out a Teaching Activity Survey. The form can be completed online OR downloaded and returned to the RTP office.

Equipment and Facilities. Various tools and devices from our equipment inventory may be borrowed to use for RTP teaching activities. Maps are also available. A field laboratory, observation deck at University Lake (Willard Pavilion), and a shelter house are located on the Griffy Woods property.
