Thanks for visiting the Mountain Studies website. We’re temporarily down for maintenence. We’re pretty sure the new site will be up by early April, 2014, so check back then. Thanks!
The Mountain Studies Institute is an independent not-for-profit mountain research and education center established in 2002 in Silverton, CO. MSI develops science that people can use to address environmental issues facing the San Juan Mountains. We conduct and facilitate research, provide educational opportunities and internships, and conduct environmental monitoring. We connect scientists and stakeholders across the San Juan Mountain region to go beyond scientific inquiry to the meaningful application of knowledge that makes a difference for the quality of the environment.
