We've put some information on this site to help you know more about us. We hope you'll enjoy these pages, and that you'll find something here that interests you.

As you spend some time here, you'll see that the Center has an interesting history, and that the place is considered by many to be the cradle of world-wide rangeland and watershed research. 


The GBEEC is located at 8,900 feet in the center of Utah, on the eastern edge of the Great Basin. Our facilities are nestled in a spruce/aspen forest. The setting is outstanding - a place where we can study, discuss current issues, and learn to understand and enjoy our environment.


Our programs include: Mythology of the Night Skies, Studies of Native American Cultures, Wilderness Medicine Courses, Photography Workshops, Conferences for Resource Managers, Field Trips for Elementary and Middle School Students, Career Camps for High School Students, and Workshops for the General Public. We also offer workshops for those who teach in the public schools, providing them with inservice credit and information about environmental issues to take back to their classrooms.


We are committed to support research on the Wasatch Plateau. We have accommodated scientists from universities in the United States and other countries who have made the GBEEC their home while doing research.


We operate as a unique partnership between Snow College, the Manti/LaSal National Forest, and the City of Ephraim.


Our Mission and Goals:

Preserve the history of the Wasatch Plateau;

Provide edcational experiences to help us all understand, enjoy, and appreciate our environment;

Support the continuing research on the Wasatch Pateau.


We're continuing a time-honored mission of improving man's environment through research and dissemination of information.
We hope you have enjoyed visiting our web page. Please come back often.
