Facilities & Rates

Ecologically sensitive building design makes the site part of the rolling hills and short vegetation of the surrounding grasslands. The facility is available for use 12 months of the year.


          The SGRC has spaces useful to a broad range of visitors. Typical users are day-long to week-long workshops, conferences, retreats, and grassland researchers for longer stays. Others have been writers and groups of naturalists observing bird migrations, including rare and endangered species like mountain plover and burrowing owl.

          Lodging for up to 30 overnight visitors is in three spacious houses, each sleeping 10 in double occupancy bedrooms. Each reservation includes a full kitchen, complete bed and bath linens, washer and dryer, common spaces for relaxation and/or smaller meetings, and a large porch with views of the grasslands.

The SGRC cannot provide food service, but caterers from Fort Collins, Greeley and Cheyenne serve the location.

Please note: Pets are not allowed at the site.

The site has access to high-speed internet and wireless connections.
