Honors Biology Class Enjoys Weekend Field Course at Grand Bay

A freshman biology class from the Honors College at Auburn University recently enjoyed a weekend of field studies at the Grand Bay NERR.  Led by Reserve Stewardship Coordinator and wildlife biologist Will Underwood, the students learned about a variety of environmental topics while enjoying the dorm and classroom facilities at the Grand Bay Coastal Resource Center.  The class received hands on experience while walking through salt and fresh marshes as well as pine savannas.  For many of the students, this was their first opportunity to get their feet wet in the wilds of Mississippi.  The Reserve looks forward to making this field course a yearly partnership with Auburn University.
