Field-based teaching in a variety of settings is used to expose students to a wide range of wetland systems and socioeconomic settings. From left to right: 1) Students study a fossil in an ash layer buried in soil at Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge, OR; 2) Exploring the marsh at Grays Lake National Wildlife Refuge, ID; 3) Learning to read a surface elevation table at Appalachicola National Estuarine Reserve, FL; 4) Capturing a moment at Klamath Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, OR; and 5) Visiting the national champion baldcypress tree at Cat Island National Wildlife Refuge, LA.

Unit scientists teach a number of graduate courses focused on wetlands, restoration ecology, policy, and behavioral ecology. In addition, Unit scientists provide guest lectures to a number of University classes.
