Student Information

Locations for course collecting trips:

501 and 502:  
Texas, Brazos Co., Bryan; Texas A&M Horticulture Farm; entrance on FM 2818, 0.4 mi S. jct. Villa Maria.  Then tell *where* you were out there, using some direction (N/S/E/W) and distance from some landmark.  We saw at least 28 collectible plants.

503 and 505:  Texas, Brazos Co., College Station.  Use as a reference point "College Station Baptist Church, 2555 Texas Ave. S."  Then tell *where* you were--in the lawn W of the church and E of Texas Avenue, in the lawn S of the church, in the open area E of the church, etc.  Alternatively you may have have collected away from the church, more towards the corner of Krenek Tap Road and Texas Avenue, in which case you would say, " X feet or meters in some direction from NE jct. Krenek Tap Road and Texas Avenue"--and specify your direction and distance...

If you need to, consult a map, Google Earth, or Mapquest.  Remember that these words-- behind, right, left, of off, next to, near, before, and after--usually have no place on a label.
