Biology Class Studies Yellowstone's Natural History

Biology class studies Yellowstone's natural history graphic.Instructors, students and community members participating in summer biology course, BIOL 299:Yellowstone Natural History, recently returned from their field study where they investigated the ecology, geology, resource management and policy at the "World's 1st National Park."

A total of 11 students from GBC biology and nursing programs participated, including community members and biology instructors Pete Bagley, Dr. Dan Bergey and Dr. Katie Duryea. The group spent three nights in the park and two nights outside of the park in the Beartooth Range.

Territory was covered in Yellowstone National Park, including Old Faithful, Yellowstone Lake, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and Northern Range. In addition, the group explored alpine and subalpine ecosystems of the Beartooths. Students enjoyed the wildlife viewing, as the elk were in velvet (and in camp!) and the buffalo rut had started.
