The acreage has increased from the last submission because areas that were counted for landscape management and water use (such as a plot of park land east of Skinker Blvd) are not included in the acreage on the university’s campuses page. These areas are managed by the university and should be included in our overall acreage.

We are still excluding the 2000 acre outdoor laboratory, Tyson Research Center
