Taylor Wilderness Research Station is located in the heart of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in central Idaho.
Surrounded by over four million acres of wilderness, the station provides outstanding access, facilities and logistical support for research on natural environments and processes. Taylor's users include high school, undergraduate and graduate students, faculty from the University of Idaho and Idaho State University, independent researchers from NOAA, Idaho Fish and Game, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and many others.
Taylor has been owned and operated as a research facility by the University of Idaho since 1970. The support of the National Science Foundation (NSF) has been critical in the planning, facility development and instrumentation of research and education here at Taylor.
