The PNW Research Station employs about 300 permanent, full-time employees. Scientists are the core of the PNW workforce, and there are about 80 researchers in the Station. Their expertise, often internationally recognized, is in the biological, physical, and social aspects of forests. Scientists work in teams that include highly trained specialists who prepare, conduct, and report on studies and integrate scientific knowledge into tools and communication products used by land managers, policymakers, and others.
Station employees excel in reaching out to scientists and specialists at more than 75 universities as well as those in other government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, private industry, and other units of the U.S. Forest Service. We lend a hand in understanding how people can integrate science into decision-making, often across large, varied landscapes. Our work is reflected in how forests are managed throughout Alaska, Oregon, Washington, and other locations.
