Walnut Creek Station

Hosting long and short-term educational research projects

Walnut Creek Station for Educational Research functions as a collaborative partnership among Prescott College, Yavapai College , Sharlot Hall Museum , Northern Arizona University , and the Prescott National Forest .

Each Walnut Creek Station partner contributes funding to maintain the 250-acre site, which hosts projects, classes, meetings, and other functions. As many as three Prescott College classes per week take advantage of the station for field trips.

Some 45 miles northwest of Prescott, the Walnut Creek Station also hosts long- and short-term research projects for federal and state agencies and others. Many students conduct independent studies at the station.
