All laboratories are conducted outdoors in whole or in part, regardless of weather conditions. Appropriate protective clothing should be worn when inclement weather is anticipated. Boots are recommended for off-campus trips. Because of the obvious health risks associated with exposure to inclement weather, the instructors reserve the right to dismiss any student who is not properly dressed from any lab period.
Being outdoors carries some additional risk. Always be aware of your surroundings. Pay special attention while crossing roads or examining trees near roads. Use your knofe responsibly. Bees, wasps and yellow jackets, although not common, may be encountered during a lab. You may wish to inform your instructor and TA of any allergies or other medical conditions that you may have. Poison-ivy will be present, so know what the species looks like. It is everyone's responsibility for keeping the class safe.
