Come walk on the wild side at the Laredo College Lamar Bruni Vergara Environmental Science Center, where you can experience all that surrounds you. The center contains representations of the Rio Grande ecosystem and live specimens of plant and animal life to serve as a living science laboratory for local students.
The center supports college-level study in various disciplines, including all sciences, the visual arts, languages, mathematics, kinesiology and speech/drama, among others.
PK-12 curriculum also has been developed to integrate the center’s laboratory experience into classroom study by children in local public and private schools. The center is a regional destination for elementary, middle and high school students to receive experiential science instruction, mainly in life, biological, aquatic and environmental sciences.
