Forest and Grassland Research Laboratory

The Forest and Grassland Research Laboratory in Rapid City, South Dakota concentrates on problems identified by the public, resource managers, and the science community from the central and northern Great Plains region, including the Black Hills.

Our research is primarily concentrated in the following areas:

  • Invasive Species: developing the tools and techniques to evaluate and manage the increasingly rapid spread of invasive plant species
  • Wildlife: developing the knowledge and tools for managing and sustaining proper function of natural and restored ecosystems to provide ecosystem services and wildlife habitat
  • For Stakeholders: In addition to invasive species and wildlife issues, the Forest and Grassland Research Laboratory is conducting research to address additional questions asked of us by our stakeholders
