Each summer CFC faculty and graduate students head out into the field to collect data and run research projects.

Here are a few things we’ll be doing this summer:

  • Measuring trees and shrubs throughout the Northern Rockies and the Great Basin
  • Studying fire behavior on prescribed fires in Florida
  • Commanding fire teams on wildfires across the West
  • Rafting the Blackfoot River
  • Surveying small carnivores in the Brooks Range of Alaska
  • Looking at bark beetle responses to stand treatments at the College’s Lubrecht Experimental Forest
  • Eating fresh carrots from one of Missoula’s farmers’ markets
  • Studying climate change interactions with ambrosia beetles and fungi in Africa
  • Using remote cameras to study grizzly bears from Waterton to Jasper National Parks in Canada
  • Enjoying a local brew from one of Missoula’s four local breweries
  • Putting radio collars on elk calves in the southern Bitterroot mountains of Montana
