Courses at Bonderman Field Station

geology course environmental studies course

Bonderman Field Station at Rio Mesa hosts courses from the University of Utah, other institutions of higher education, middle/high schools, and non-profit organizations.  Most of our use comes from multi-day visits as part of a regular course on a school campus; however, we do host stand-alone workshops and multi-week courses at the station. We can accommodate groups of up to 40 in our campground facility. Instructors that wish to visit Bonderman Field Station should submit an application online to request dates. 

Bonderman Field Station staff can assist with arranging supplemental educational curriculum/activities, coordinating service projects for groups, or providing logistical support.  Bonderman Field Station Staff cannot be solely responsible for supervising any minors. If your group includes middle/high school-age students, it is the responsibility of the intructor to ensure that sufficient chaperones are in attendance so that field station staff are not asked to supervise minors on their own. 

Non-University of Utah applicants will need to return a signed educational user agreement, and submit required insurance documentation, including a certificate of general liability insurance from your home institution/organization (minimum of $1Million in general liability insurance with University of Utah listed as additional insured).

Logistical questions about bringing an educational group to Bonderman Field Station can be directed to Dr. Zachary Lundeen at 801-585-3177 or .
