Restoration of forests locally and internationally is more relevant than ever. Developing and sharing best practices for nursery production, filling niche markets with specialized trees, and fire restoration are top priorities at our forest nursery, first started in 1909.
For more than 75 years the college has committed to hands-on STEM education and research on the banks of Payette Lake. Learning from the land in this natural classroom provides thousands of students of all ages the opportunity to not just learn science, but to live it.
This remote research station in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness is a pristine research and education site, surrounded by more than four million acres of wilderness. UI has owned the facility since 1970 and the college continues to invest in infrastructure and programming at this unique site.
Developing sustainable forest practices and practical experience come together on these 12,500 acres of timberland within a short drive from campus. This outdoor classroom is not only a hands-on training ground, it also the site of extensive research and outreach.
