Supporters of the Capitol Reef Field Station (CRFS)

The Field Station lies hidden in the Natural Beauty of Capitol Reef.

CAPITOL REEF FIELD STATION blends into the deep-driven sandstone canyons in the heart of the Colorado Plateau. Where Pleasant Creek breaks free of its narrow canyon walls and just before it cuts through the Water-pocket Fold, it nourishes an oasis of tall grasses, wildflowers, shady cottonwoods, and aromatic sagebrush. On a bluff above Pleasant Creek, Capitol Reef Field Station’s (CRFS) 6200-square-foot complex of classroom/laboratory, dormitories, and support buildings is a focal site for university-level education and field studies in the cultural and natural history of the Colorado Plateau—one of the most complex, and beautiful eco-regions in the United States.

CRFS began operation on October 16, 2008, the result of a unique partnership between Utah Valley University and Capitol Reef National Park. CRFS is harmonious with its environment in its physical aesthetics, off-grid energy and water consumption, and leave-no-trace operations.
