Connecting with Science in Northwest Parks
The North Coast and Cascades Research Learning Center is one of 18 research learning centers throughout the country. Research learning centers promote national parks as premier places for scientific enquiry, facilitate the use of science to inform management decisions, and help incorporate science into visitor and staff experiences.
The NCC RLC is co-located with the North Coast and Cascades Inventory and Monitoring Network. The RLC works with network parks, the NCC I&M Network, and other researchers to identify research needs, coordinate science activities, and make science accessible for park management.
