Our mission is to advance, apply and facilitate global, national, and regional research on sustainable and resilient human communities and ecosystems. HERS delivers expertise in ecological assessment and monitoring, natural resource conservation, and sustainability theory and practice to support evidence-based conservation for the 21st century.
Through our long-term monitoring programs, we collect baseline data necessary to understand impacts of changing environmental conditions on plants, wildlife and ecosystems. By working with research and management partners across the Pacific Northwest, we can ensure that comprehensive, high-quality data are used to identify changes in our landscape. Our research models provide understanding of local impacts and landscape-level ecological trends.
