Our academic program has something for everyone interested in ecology. We emphasize hands-on learning outside under the open sky, as opposed to traditional college courses in lecture halls and stuffy laboratories.
All courses involve multiple field trips to relevant sites within the Flathead Basin, including Glacier National Park and the National Bison Range. Direct observation of biota and ecological processes is stressed.
Hiking, boating and outdoor scholarly fun are an everyday part of these novel courses. Overnight camping, often in backcountry settings, is a part of most classes.
