The Faculty of Environment Ecology Lab is your one-stop resource centre. We are here to support lab and field activities, courses, projects, and outreach initiatives. Available to you are field guides, lab and field equipment, documentation, and preserved specimens. We share our expertise in taxa identification and analysis, water and soil analysis, gardening, and other topics.

The Lab staff facilitates hands on learning through workshops, outreach events, project participation, and volunteer opportunities. Our outdoor classrooms along with the laboratory help students thrive in their quest for environmental experiences.
