UW NPS Research Station's 2016 newsletter and RFP are here!

Here is the UW NPS Research Station’s newsletter with our 2016 RFP for the small grant program.

The small grant program funds up to 12 projects a year ($5,000 each) for research in the Greater Yellowstone Area. They are perfect for that grad student ready to test their wings. Suggested topics are included but if you have an idea and well written proposal please consider sending it our way!

The station is one of UW’s better kept secrets; on the Jackson lake with a million dollar view and rates so low even researchers smile. Email the Director Harold Bergman at  or for more information.

Joe RissJoe Riis, Summer Seminar speaker, named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year

November 13, 2015 — University of Wyoming alumni Joe Riis and Arthur Middleton have been named 2016 National Geographic Adventurers of the Year for their work studying, photographing and exploring wildlife migrations in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem (GYE).

Riis, a wildlife photojournalist, and Middleton, a research scientist at Yale, have traveled 1,600 miles by foot, horse and mule on trails of migratory elk in northwest Wyoming. They’ve spent months deep in the backcountry, come face to face with grizzlies, watched herds of elk swim the South Fork of the Shoshone River, crossed 12,000-foot mountain passes, and collared elk to map their movements, all to better understand how long-distance migration ties together the landscape -- from ranches near Cody to Yellowstone’s Thoroughfare country.  To read more just click on the image.
