Working at CSU

Registration now open for Faculty/Staff Weekend at Pingree Park

April 9, 2009

Pingree Park offers two Faculty/Staff Weekends to all faculty and staff of Colorado State University (current and retired). This provides a chance to come and experience the mountain setting of Pingree Park.

Register for May 23-26 weekend

Families and guests are welcome to accompany CSU faculty and staff members. A registration form for the May 23-26 weekend is located on the Pingree Park Web page where you will also find photographs, information, and maps of the area.

Located north of Rocky Mountain National Park at 9,000 feet, the Pingree Park Campus has been the field-session site for Forestry and Natural Resources since 1916.

Original homesteads preserved

Before the arrival of the University, the Koenig and Ramsey families occupied the Pingree Valley. Thanks to the preservation efforts of CSU, their cabins and other buildings remain intact today.

In 1975, CSU built a conference center and began hosting retreats and workshops. Pingree provides facilities for conferences and classes in dorms and cabins. In addition to CSU groups, Pingree hosts student groups from CU, UNC, DU, as well as out-of-state universities. Conferences from the private sector also use the campus throughout the season. In the Fall, Pingree hosts the Poudre School District “Eco-Week” environmental science programs.

Diverse wildlife, hiking trails, beautiful surroundings

Diverse wildlife claims the Pingree Valley as their home. Frequent residents include hummingbirds, deer, badger, and moose. Hiking trails leave from campus and climb above tree line to 11,000 foot peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park that comprise the southern skyline at Pingree Park.
