The North Coast and Cascades Research Learning Center (NCC RLC) is one of 18 Research Learning Centers throughout the Nation, and works to:

  • Promote National Parks as premier places for scientific enquiry. 
  • Facilitate the use of science to inform management decisions. 
  • Incorporate science into park visitor and staff experiences.

Our Research Learning Center is co-located with the North Coast and Cascades Network Inventory and Monitoring Program (NCCN I&M). The RLC works with network parks, the NCCN I&M Program, and other researchers to identify research needs, coordinate science activities, and make science accessible for park management.
