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 closed for researchers.

What a great research season, the station was packed, the weather was fantastic, the seminars were well attended.  Now Gordo and Callahan are closing the cabins and getting ready for winter.  Please check back in January for the RFP for our small grants program and to submit housing for next year's season.

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!
