Courses involve field trips to Flathead Basin sites like Glacier National Park, and most courses include overnight camping. Experience sweeping vistas and traverse spectacular terrain while exploring pristine alpine wilderness, crystal-clear mountain lakes, streams, and rivers–all benefits of an academic adventure and scholarly fun in the “Crown of the Continent” in Northwest Montana. The first FLBS field course was offered in 1899 (120 years ago!), distinguishing FLBS as one of the oldest biological stations in the United States.
