RNA Contacts

Questions on research within individual Research Natural Areas should be directed to the appropriate RMRS Regional RNA Coordinator. The coordinators also act as general points contact for their RNAs.

NFS Regional RNA Coordinators serve as points of contact for RNAs in congressionally designated areas (such as Wilderness, National Primitive Areas, National Recreation Areas, National Scenic-Research Areas, National Scenic Trails, or National Historic Trails).
