Staff members coordinate and accommodate research project proposals from a wide range of disciplines from colleges, universities, agencies, and interest groups from Utah and beyond. Hundreds of individuals working on dozens of research projects have experienced the comradely atmosphere. Research teams depart each morning and return to camp each evening to share a communal dinner. Evening conversations generally focus on the discoveries and accomplishments of the day. The same sense of common purpose and spirit is shared by the many who have volunteered their time, energy, and services toward making the ranch a comfortable base of operations.
