Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center was opened in 1965 by the Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife to conduct research on waterfowl production with emphasis on wetland ecology and species biology. Today, under the U.S. Geological Survey, the Center serves to conduct integrated research to fulfill the Department of the Interior's responsibilities to the Nation's natural resources. The center's work is conducted by specialists in many areas, including land management, wetland ecology, statistical, wildlife population, plant population biology, and much more.
The mission of Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center is to provide the scientific information needed to conserve and manage the nation's biological resources, with an emphasis on the species and ecosystems of the nation's interior. Specifically, the Center's goals include the following:
The Northern Prairie Science Center is striving to make information on the animal and plant species of the midcontinental environment more widely available to decision-makers, resource managers, scientists, and the public. This web site serves as a medium to provide that information.
The Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center is composed of the Headquarters at Jamestown, North Dakota, and four Field Stations: the Woodworth Field Station, the Minnesota Field Station, and the South Dakota Field Station.
