Posted by: jstoddard on 7/18/11 4:34 AM

A groundbreaking ceremony for the new Wyss Wilderness Medicine Campus is scheduled for 10am on 7/26. The event will host the former land owners, Dr. and Mrs. Charles McMahon, and WMI and NOLS administrators as well as project design team members, project management staff, and neighbors. Design for the campus has been ongoing since NOLS closed on the property at the end of last year.

A collection of residential structures are proposed that will support a central educational facility complete with offices, commons, classrooms, and kitchen/dining facilities. The campus desigin includes a variety of sustainable systems and components to lessen the impact of developing a portion of this natural 242-acre property.

Additional opportunities for meeting the managing staff and seeing the desigins will be forthcoming this summer in open houses offered at NOLS facilities in Lander and on the site. Counstruction tours will also be scheduled later this summer.
