Harold Bergman and crew would like to welcome you to the UW-NPS research station located beside Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park. The station is a perfect place to base for your research in the Greater Yellowstone Area.
The Station is filling up fast! Let us know if you need housing for research or classes this summer. Don't miss out on those evening boat dock sessions! Update April 2015; the station is all but full, if you need housing please let me know soon, time slots are at a minimum but we can put you on the wait list.
Mary Humstone (University of Wyoming) wrote in in-depth preservation guide for the historic structures at the AMK. The guide is based on inspections and research conducted as part of an American Studies field course during summer 2011, under the guidance of log building expert Harrison Goodall. The guide identifies preservation concerns with the property's sixteen historic buildings and offers well researched recommendations. It also has some great historic photos of some of the AMK structures, including John Sargent's cabin (which is no longer standing) and the Johnson Lodge under construction. The recommendations are valuable to log restoration experts in the Rocky Mountains. Thanks, Mary! To read the publication please click here!
Congratulations to the Researchers who were awarded the small grants for 2015. This year we had 31 great proposals submitted from across America with research from soundscapes to historic preservation. It was a tough time deciding how to allocate our funds. Thanks to all who submitted and good luck with your 2015 research season. For more information see our research page.
The University of Wyoming-National Park Service (UW-NPS) Research Center is a cooperative effort between the University of Wyoming and the National Park Service. Headquartered on the University of Wyoming campus in Laramie, the research center was established to foster research in National Parks in the Rocky Mountain Region. In addition, the center operates a field research station at the AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park which is open from mid-May through mid-October.
The primary function of the Research Station is to promote excellence in research by furnishing housing, laboratory space, transportation, equipment and financial support to enable investigators in the biological, physical and social sciences to access the rich and diverse environments of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, Bridger-Teton and Targhee National Forest and the Gros Vente and Teton Wilderness Areas.
The research station is currently open for researchers. Additionally we will be hosting our popular seminar series starting in June please visit our News page for more information.Please visit our research living opportunities
