Our Mission

The Land and Watershed Management Program increases understanding of terrestrial, aquatic, and riparian ecosystems and their linkages to inform management and policy options and develops tools to enhance or maintain the production of desired goods and services. Program Charter

 

About Us

Closeup of water.The Land and Watershed Management Program conducts research in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon. Our work explores important biological, physical, and social considerations for forest ecosystems and reflects a strong science-management partnership that is vital to addressing society’s demands for forest goods and services. Our research spans a number of science topics, including water, air, and soil; resource management and use; wildlife and fish; and inventory, monitoring, and analysis.

 

Research Areas

Scientists in the Land and Watershed Management Program explore three research areas that address managers’ and decisionmakers’ basic science needs:

  • Improve knowledge of terrestrial, aquatic, and riparian ecology and their linkages
  • Develop integrated management alternatives to provide desired goods and services
  • Create and refine models, databases, and tools to evaluate management alternatives
