SFA Students Experience BMPs Firsthand

Last week, 46 students enrolled in ecology at Stephen F. Austin State University were able to view various Texas forestry best management practices (BMPs) implemented on the ground in northeast Nacogdoches County.  In addition to viewing methods of erosion control in forestry operations, the students learned about various facets of the program including the effectiveness monitoring project.  While learning about the BMP effectiveness project, the students were able to view equipment used to sample benthic organisms, as well as some organisms that were living in the creek running through the tract.
