    Comments Off

    A UT panel of faculty members is recommending transforming the University of Texas’ Brackenridge tract into an environmental science campus which would enhance an existing biological field laboratory by housing the university’s extensive plant and natural history collections, currently stored on the main campus, in a new science center that would serve as a museum, a research center and a public outreach site.
