Why Ecological Studies at Barry?
Our institution is located in a county that is one of the largest in agricultural productivity in the nation, and in a state where our fragile ecosystem is challenged daily. Additionally, our county is experiencing rapid population growth. This program will allow us to educate citizens and scientists for the twenty-first century so that they may work to restore our environment - our greatest national heritage - before it is too late.
The South Florida environment provides unique opportunities for environmental studies, include marine environment and unique everglades environment within the county.
