White Family Outdoor Learning Center

The White Family Outdoor Learning Center is a 266-acre living classroom in Hays County in the Texas Hill Country. It provides channels, floodplains and hill slopes that cover a range of steepness and soil occurrences. The topographic, lithologic and hydrologic variability provides an ability to design and implement long-term hydrological and ecological monitoring and data collection for use in research and teaching.

Research projects, data collection, and longterm monitoring include…

  • Water resources and ecosystem carbon storage under drought
  • Trees as water towers
  • UAV monitoring of topography and landscape change
  • Hill country groundwater resources and recharge
