field sites

Alabama is home to some of the most biologically rich waterbodies in the U.S. that include reservoirs, ponds, rivers, streams, estuaries, and wetlands.  Alabama ranks #1 in navigable stream miles while roughly 10% of U.S. freshwater resources flow through the State.  REU participants will have access to a huge assortment of potential field sites for their independent projects.
