Rich Research History Continues at HJ Andrews Experimental Forest
Recently, the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program received another six-year NSF LTER grant for $6,762,000. The grant supports an interdisciplinary team of research faculty and staff in the College of Forestry and across the OSU Campus and includes scientists from the U.S. Forest Service's Pacific Northwest Research Station.
The mission of the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest is to support research on forests, streams, and watersheds, and to foster strong collaboration among ecosystem science, education, natural resource management, and the humanities. The program is managed cooperatively by OSU, the Forest Service's Research Station, and Willamette National Forest. Read more at http://andrewsforest.oregonstate.edu/.
