Conducting Research in the Preserve

The National Park Service welcomes your interest in considering Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve for your research site. The Preserve is responsible for protecting and regulating the use of areas within it's borders. Preserving park resources and providing for appropriate visitor use of the Preserve requires a full understanding of its cultural and natural resources. This can best be obtained through the long-term study and analysis of scientific data. The park has a research mandate to provide management with that understanding, using the highest quality science and information. Park managers increasingly recognize that timely and reliable scientific information is essential for sound decisions and interpretive programming.

The Timucuan Preserve welcomes proposals for scientific studies designed to increase our understanding of the human and ecological processes and resources in the Preserve.
