GLREC - Nationwide Connections

The Great Lakes Research and Education Center is part of a much larger National Park Service (NPS) initiative to advance the management and protection of natural and cultural resources in the National Park System. Called the Natural Resources Challenge (or simply the Challenge), this enterprise is focusing energy, commitment, and resources on the NPS mission to preserve and protect our national heritage for the American people.

A network of Research Learning Centers (RLCs) was developed as a result of the Challenge. Currently 20 RLCs exist across the nation. http://www.nature.nps.gov/learningcenters/

We collaborate with other Natural Resource Challenge Programs within that same area.
