Conducting Research

Studies that have the potential to disturb or alter the landscape must meet specific guidelines and may require formal environmental analysis.

All research on the Fernow Experimental Forest requires a study plan approved by the Fernow scientist-in-charge regardless of type, extent, duration, or impact.

If you are interested in conducting research at the Fernow, please contact Melissa Thomas-Van Gundy, scientist-in-charge well in advance of initiating the study.
