Geography 137 Field Trip to the UT Arboretum

Students in the Geography 137 Honors section of the Introductory Physical Geography course spent Sunday, September 11, 2011 at the University of Tennessee Arboretum in Oak Ridge. Working with graduate students Joanne Ballard and Matt Boehm, and instructor Sally Horn, the students collected tree-ring and soil samples for research projects, and examined the NOAA meteorological station at the site. We are grateful to Director Kevin P. Hoyt for allowing us to use the excellent resources of the UT arboretum.
