Pingree Park

Having fun at Pingree Park Campus

The Pingree Park campus is located in a high valley of the Rocky Mountains (9,000 feet above sea level), approximately 2 hours drive west of the city of Fort Collins.  It is surrounded by two National Forests and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Undergraduate students with majors in forestry, natural resource management, rangeland ecology, watershed, ecosystem science and sustainability, and fish, wildlife, and conservation biology are required to attend a four-week summer session (NR220) at Pingree Park, typically in the summer between their sophomore and junior years.

In addition, forestry students are required to attend an additional two week session (F230) at Pingree Park that covers material specific to forestry.
