Great Lakes Research & Education Center Mission
As a result of the 1999 "Natural Resources Challenge," the National Park Service and a variety of partners created 20 Research Learning Centers across the country to help improve natural resource stewardship and management. The Great Lakes Research and Education Center (GLREC), stationed at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, is one such center. The GLREC was established in 2002 to facilitate research and provide educational opportunities in 10 national parks in the Great Lakes Region. It involves public-private partnerships with a wide range of people and organizations, including researchers, universities, educators, students, and community groups. Through collaborative efforts, the GLREC communicates scientific information to enhance management decisions within the network parks and contributes to public understanding of natural and cultural resources.
