The research center operates in a field station at the historic AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park, located 65 km north of Jackson, Wyoming. The field station provides scientists abundant research opportunities in the diverse terrestrial and aquatic environments of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks as well as the surrounding National Forests and Wilderness areas that make up the entire Greater Yellowstone area (GYA). The station has housing for up to 60 researchers and provides terrestrial and aquatic laboratories, boats, field equipment, conference rooms, internet service and a library, all on site. A small grants program provides funding yearly for individual proposals up to $5,000 as well as scholarship and intern funding for projects conducted in the GYA. Field courses and conference are accommodated in the spring and fall seasons. A weekly seminar series with a barbecue dinner is presented throughout the summer.
