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.
