The Green River Community
College campus at Auburn
is located on approximately 200 acres of forest. Natural Resources faculty
and students utilize this forest for almost all classroom teaching and
learning. The Natural Resources program maintains four miles of hiking and
biking trails for neighbors, students, and staff. Students conduct actual
recreational, wildlife, water, fire, and forest management operations.
Research projects are ongoing here, including a ten-year study of a natural
root fungus that kills Douglas-fir trees.
