National Park Service places like Harpers Ferry are an oasis for visitors and for researchers because they offer some of the best protected cultural heritage and natural landscapes in the nation. Each year, numerous research projects are permitted at Harpers Ferry that visitors may never see. Our staff need the accurate and current natural and cultural resource information this research provides to best care for the park. Research here ranges from studies of rare limestone-cedar glades, to amphibian populations, to the architecture of historic park buildings.
