CSU Mountain Campus
The CSU Mountain 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 the CSU Mountain Campus that covers material specific to forestry.
Session 1 - May 16 - June 10 (001-50702 & L01-50704)
Session 2 - June 13 - July 8 (002-50703 & L02-50705)
Session 3 - July 11 - August 5 (003-56271 & L03-56272)
Please see this registration flyer for information on registration (registration begins March 22 at noon). When you register in RamWeb make sure you choose the Summer Session as RamWeb may default to Fall Semester.
After the registration period is complete, we will have a mandatory introduction on April 14, 2016 from 5:30-6:45pm in Plant Sciences (PLSCI C101). Here are the slides from that meeting, if you missed the meeting.
Before attending NR 220, you will need to sign liability and permission forms. These will be available on the Canvas website in late April. These forms include:
Required NR 220 Liability Release
Required Mountain Campus Housing Agreement
Optional cabin assignment request
Here is a list of books and supplies needed for NR 220; most will be available at the CSU bookstore.

For students in WCNR, consider applying for a WCNR scholarship (http://taurus.cnr.colostate.edu/apps/scholarship/)
Consider applying to be a Resident Assistant at the Mountain Campus during your session (Resident Assistant job opportunity/application)
If you are a graduate student, or have taken NR 220 in the past, consider applying to be a TA for NR 220.
Here is a nice opportunity to work with the Colorado State Forest Service for part of the summer.
