NPWRC History

We are happy to announce the publication of "Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center -- Celebrating 50 years of Science".  The Circular can be downloaded as a PDF from the USGS Publication Warehouse at
The Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center (NPWRC) celebrated its 50-year anniversary in 2015. This report is written in support of that observance. We document why and how the NPWRC came to be and describe some of its many accomplishments and the influence the Center’s research program has had on natural resource management. We hope that you will take the opportunity to read this publication to better understand where we've been, what we've learned, and how our first 50 years of research serves as a foundation for continued work.
Supporting that publication is a data release -- a list of publications and reports over our first 50 years -- which can also be accessed through the USGS webpage or directly at:

Our sincere thanks to the many people who contributed to the publication, and to the many friends, colleagues, and partners to our Center over these years.
