Research Needs & Opportunities

Visiting Researchers Welcome!

There is still much to learn about the Harris Center’s protected lands and our lands, in turn, have much to offer to the fields of biology, ecology, geology, and other conservation sciences. In early 2017, we developed a draft list of SuperSanctuary research needs, which we hope to expand into a detailed catalog of research opportunities. This list, and the catalog to come, are intended to serve as a guide for graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty, and others who are considering research on Harris Center lands, but are by no means exhaustive. If you have ideas for study within your field of expertise, please contact us.
