Join us for the 50th Anniversary Celebrations of Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center


The USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center is celebrating its 50th year of conducting research for the management of the Great Plains’ natural resources. The Center was founded in 1965 to establish a scientific foundation for, and help guide the future of the Department of Interior’s waterfowl management programs. Northern Prairie became an internationally respected center of excellence in migratory bird and wetland research through its many field studies throughout the Prairie Pothole Region. We invite all alumni, partners, and colleagues to join us for a formal celebration of Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center’s 50th Anniversary at 10:30 am on Friday, August 21, 2015 at NPWRC. 

Staff will also be hosting an Anniversary Open House for the public from 10:00 to 2:00 on Saturday, August 22.  The public is encouraged to join us and learn more about what we do, watch demonstrations, and meet the staff.  Hotdogs, lemonade and cake will be served from 11:30 – 12:30.
