Instructors (not GTAs or TAs) must be present with their students at the experience, and experiences are limited to 30 students

The Auburn University Water Resources Center (AUWRC) offers student experiences for Auburn University courses. The AUWRC recognizes the importance of experiential learning and is seeking to supplement traditional classroom education through outdoor experiences related to student coursework. 
Instructors can request activities and demonstrations from AUWRC’s programs that include:

    • Stream Biomonitoring with Alabama Water Watch (AWW) – up to 2 hours
    • Green Stormwater Infrastructure Walking Tour with Alabama Watershed Stewards (AWS) – up to 2 hours
    • Stream Restoration Tour with Alabama Watershed Stewards (AWS) – up to 2 hours

AUWRC Staff will work closely with course instructors to determine a suitable location for the experience that is reasonably close to the University. Once the application is accepted, the date and time of the experience will be discussed with the instructor. The logistics and cost of transporting students to the location of the experience is the responsibility of the course instructor. 
Outdoor experiences must be scheduled between 8am – 4:30pm.
