Bridging the gaps between science, management and the public: the record of the UW-NPS Research Center in Grand Teton National Park from 1953 to 2015

Harold Bergman - Professor - Zoology & Physiology and Director, UW – National Park Service Research Station in Grand Teton National Park

The University of Wyoming-NPS Research Center, located in Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) since 1953, represents a successful partnership between park managers and physical, natural and social scientists pursuing projects in the Greater Yellowstone Area (GYA). With a mission to provide research support for national park and forest managers in the GYA, the center compiles GYA research priorities; solicits and jointly funds research to address priorities; provides housing, equipment, lab and library services; provides a base for courses, internships, workshops and conferences; hosts a summer-season seminar series for the public; and publishes an annual report with project summaries. Since moving to a new location at GTNP’s historic AMK Ranch in 1976, UW and NPS have jointly funded over $3.5 million to support over 600 research projects leading to about 1000 publications on a wide range of physical, natural and social science projects to help managers make informed decisions in the GYA

Early Paleo-Indian Lifeways in the High Rockies

Marcel Kornfeld - Professor - Archaeology, University of Wyoming

The Rocky Mountains were occupied at the same time as the rest of the American continents, approximately 14,000 years ago. The area of Middle Park, in Colorado, was extensively and continuously settled shortly after this time. It provides evidence of the adaptive strategies of the First Americans (Paleoindians) as they made their living in these high altitudes.
