History

The Glenn Sebastian Nature Trail honors the contributions of geographer Dr. Glenn Sebastian, a University Professor Emeritus who joined the USA faculty in 1967 and retired in 2006. He has inspired more than four decades of USA students in the study of geography and he continues to teach even in retirement.

Sebastian served 25 years as chair of Earth Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences. His enthusiasm for teaching earned him a wide range of accolades, including the Outstanding Professor and Distinguished Service awards from the USA National Alumni Association and the Excellence in Teaching and Service awards from the College of Arts and Sciences.

Sebastian remains one of the most popular teachers on campus. More than 13,000 students have enjoyed his physical geography classes over the past 44 years. A former National Park Service Ranger, he has utilized the campus nature trail throughout the years by taking University students as well as civic and other community groups on short field trips through the area. – from http://www.southalabama.edu/departments/campusrec/facilityrental/naturetrail.html
