Big Springs Administrative Center is on the National Register of Historic Places and has been used by homesteaders, and later the Forest Service, since the 1800’s.
The complex consists of an historic office, dining hall, shower house, group kitchen, seven residential units, and several administrative structures.
Important Note Regarding Registration to Participate in Field Trips
Due to limited group size and high demand, you must register to participate in field trips. Sign up begins one month prior to each trip at approximately 1:10 p.m. on each Friday at the conclusion of the Brown Bag lecture. Participants must provide their own vehicles and fuel. Many trips will require a high clearance vehicle and four-wheel drive capacity. Lunch is provided by DASIA for a cost of $10 per person.
This schedule is subject to change based on weather, road conditions and safety considerations. Please contact the Public Lands Information Center for any schedule or location changes.
Reservations may be made by calling the Public Lands Information Center at 435-688-3200.
