Welcome to the Olympic Natural Resources Center

**

From The Director

The University of Washington's Olympic Natural Resources Center located on the Olympic Peninsula in Forks, Washington provides scientific information and services to address critical issues relating to forestry and aquatic resources. It serves as a catalyst for interdisciplinary and collaborative work, bringing expertise from forestry, ocean, and fishery sciences together with local commercial interests for the benefit of the rural and urban communities on Washigton's outer coast. By integrating research with education and outreach, it unites researchers, students, professionals, local stakeholders, and the public.

I welcome you to browse our website and learn about our resources and activities.
