All research permits in the National Park Service are coordinated through the National Park Service Research Permit and Reporting System (RPRS).  For a link to the RPRS website, click here. 

Each year Researchers are required to submit an Investigator Annual Report (IAR).  If you are interested in the research that is currently going on in the parks or past research, you can read these IARs. For a link to the IAR search page, click here. 

If you are interested in a specific unit of the National Park Service you can also contact the research coordinator at that unit.  The table below lists the contact information for the units in the North Coast and Cascades Science Learning Network.   If you click on a park in the table below it will take you to a page with more information on research in that park.
