Llano River Field Station
Texas Tech's Junction campus is home to the Llano River Field Station. Established in June of 2002, the field station provides a laboratory and classroom environment for undergraduate and graduate students from numerous universities, institutes, and public schools. As the largest inland field station in Texas, the national award-winning staff and faculty find themselves ideally situated, making it possible to conduct and coordinate research in a wide array of areas, including, but not limited to: watershed, exotic species, range management, natural resources, ecological restoration and environmental education. Issues of both national and international concern have an emphasis here, making this a very important part of the Texas Tech research mandate as a Tier One research institution.
Since its inception in 2003, the internationally-recognized Outdoor School at Texas Tech University in Junction is devoted to creating innovative STEM educational experiences that immerse K-12 learners into authentic, real-world, hands-on activities that stimulate imagination and understanding of difficult abstract concepts to remedy nature deficit disorder.
