With an organizational history that dates back approximately 30 years, the mission of the Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center (FRESC) is "to provide scientific understanding and the technology needed to support sound management and conservation of our nation's natural resources, with emphasis on western ecosystems." From the Center's homepage, visitors can learn about the valuable work being done by various researchers at the Center and learn about the four field stations they maintain in the West. The Current News section of the site summarizes recent findings culled from ongoing research projects, such as work on sagebrush habitats and the slow increase in the U.S. bald eagle population. The Product Library section contains fact sheets on the FRESC, along with information about its geospatial activities, and online documents and data sets dating from 1998 to the present.
