The college has just completed a new Environmental Studies Classroom that is situated within an environmental research park on the campus. This classroom was built to LEED-certification standards, and is associated with a Living Machine that filters water from a nearby stream. Combined with the environmental park, this area provides a unique opportunity for undergraduate research in stream ecology, forestry, and ecosystem studies.
In addition to the Environmental Park, there is an environmental research lab located within the biology department, for studies of aquatic toxicology and various other controlled laboratory experiments. The biology department also has a greenhouse, which is currently slated for renovation.
