Field trips are an important component of the learning experience in Biology at GSW.  A simple walk outside the classroom can add an entirely new prospective to a topic. Field trips provide the  opportunity to experience new habitats and to appreciated the diversity of the natural world.

Weekend camping trips allow for further travels.  Students can experience environments as vastly different as the long-leaf pine/wiregrass ecosystem of Northern Florida and the lush growth of a temperate forest along the ridges and valleys of North Georgia. From the sandy shores of St. George Island to the maritime forest of Sapelo Island, the wonders of nature energize students and faculty alike.

Weekend trips are typically associated with field classes so most of these trips occur during the Spring semester.  Student in the associated class are given first refusal, but if space allows other students can participate.  There is typically a fee to cover food and campsite cost.
