The Public Lands History Center is a group of university-based historians who use stories about the past to help partners within and beyond Colorado State University to resolve “real world” problems that are of concern to us all. We use history to shed light on contemporary problems related to the management and protection of protected areas, historic places, and habitats

During the summer, the PLHC hires graduate students to work for various federal agencies. Some graduate students are actively blogging about their experiences while they intern. Below are links to some blogs, feel free to check out their pages!
