Canyonlands Field Institute

Students display artwork depicting their stay at Professor Valley Field Camp near Taylor Ranch. After 26 years in its BLM-leased field camp, Canyonlands Field Institute moved to its new permanent location 20 miles from Moab. Executive Director Karla VanderZanden, along with CFI staff, Trustees, and community members, met Glenwood Springs (Colo.) Middle School seventh-grade students in attendance at the camp and celebrated its official opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, April 29. All of the students took part in the ribbon cutting and gave invitees detailed tours of the camp facilities, including tipi living quarters, classroom yurt, kitchen areas, and outdoor living spaces.
