How Taylor Science is Being UsedThe research opportunities at the Taylor Wilderness Research Station are based on its remote location and the minimal human impact characteristic of the 2.3 million-acre Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. These characteristics allow studies of baseline conditions for many regional to global environmental changes (e.g., temperature increase, invasive species) and direct comparisons with areas subject to other management activities. College of Natural Resources faculty, students and research partners have worked with agencies such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Idaho Fish & Game.
Because of its remote location, Taylor Wilderness Research Station is uniquely suited to host a wide variety of research.
A variety of University of Idaho, Federal and State, and partner researchers have utilized Taylor for both short-term and long-term monitoring projects.
Taylor has supported continuous long-term monitoring since 1974.
University of Idaho Engineering students developed and installed new hydroelectric and solar energy sources at Taylor in 2010. Check out how student engineers put this project together!
