June 19, 2015 — Diana Miller, Wyoming Game and Fish Department fisheries biologist, will discuss fisheries management in the West as part of the Harlow Summer Seminars Thursday, June 25, at the University of Wyoming-National Park Service (UW-NPS) Research Center. The center is located at the AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park.
Miller will discuss “Fisheries Management in the West: Case Studies on Jackson Lake and the Hoback River” at 6:30 p.m. at the AMK Ranch, located north of Leeks Marina. A barbecue, at a cost of $5 per person, will take place at 5:30 p.m. Reservations are not required. For more information, call the UW-NPS Research Center at (307) 543-2463.
Fisheries management in the United States has changed dramatically through time, Miller says. She is a fisheries biologist in the upper Snake River drainage of Wyoming.
“How we got where we are today plays a large role in how we move forward into the future,” she says.
Her talk highlights how changes in fisheries management trends across the West influence local fisheries, specifically Jackson Lake and the Hoback River. Miller also will discuss how fisheries are surveyed and how management decisions are made based on the survey results.
She received her bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology from Colorado State University and her master’s degree in fisheries management from UW. A Wyoming native, Miller researches and monitors fisheries within the area, talking with anglers and evaluating different management alternatives.
The UW-NPS Research Center provides a base for university faculty members and government scientists from throughout North America to conduct research in the diverse aquatic and terrestrial environments of Grand Teton National Park and the greater Yellowstone area.
This year's line up for our seminars looks to be stellar AND Gordy is working on getting new sources for the BBQ so now you will won't find a better place to be on Thursday nights starting June 18th. Dinner starts at 5:30 ($5 donation is appreciated) talks start at 6:30. More info to come

The Station is open!
The station is open and the word is out. We have classes (Like Michael Leite's class above) on their way and ready to explore the Greater Yellowstone Area. Classes, Conferences, Seminars and Interns... it is a busy place this year. Look for the seminar schedules soon.
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.
AMK Historic Preservation Guide now available online
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!
2015 Small Grants RFP
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.
UW-NPS a Cooperative Effort
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.
