Camp Davis Rocky Mountain Field Station

Description

Camp Davis hosts courses in Introductory Geology, Geological Mapping, Ecosystem Science and the History and Literature of the West. Located within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and nearby Grand Teton National Park, our location provides a wealth of instructional opportunities.


This ideal outdoor classroom offers some of the most scenic and interesting geology, ecology and history in the North America. Mountain uplifts and deep erosion have exposed a variety of Earth structures and rocks of diverse age and origin. The dramatic landscape provides a wide variety of soils, plants and alpine ecosystems and the mountain weather and hydrology make for interesting research and discussion. The Camp location in western Wyoming also makes it an idea home base for excursions throughout the western United States.
