New collaborative center to provide education, research on temperate rainforests
Date:8/17/2009

Federal, university, and city officials recently signed a memorandum of understanding that paves the way for the establishment of a temperate rainforest education and research center in Juneau. The Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center (ACRC), as it is known, will stimulate and develop temperate rainforest education and research.

The ACRC is a collaborative venture of the University of Alaska Southeast, University of Alaska Fairbanks, the Forest Service's Pacific Northwest Research Station, the Forest Service's Alaska Region, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Alaska Region, and the City and Borough of Juneau, Alaska.

Mayor Bruce Botelho, U.S. Forest Service Alaska Regional Forester Denny Bschor, U.S. Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station Director Bov Eav, and University of Alaska Southeast Chancellor John Pugh were among the signatories in attendance at the August 13 signing, held at the U.S. Forest Service's Regional Office.

"The three campuses of the University of Alaska Southeast reside in the Tongass National Forest, the largest temperate rainforest in the world," said UAS Chancellor Pugh. "I am very excited about UAS partnering to provide educational outreach related to the Alaska Rainforest Center and look forward to working with partners on educational and research opportunities."

The ACRC will foster a collaborative environment that expands and enhances education and research opportunities by coordinating activities among the six cooperating agencies.

In particular, the center will:

  • Provide formal and informal education at the university and community school levels as well as professional training relating to coastal rain forest ecosystems;
  • Apply knowledge gained through the collaboration to meet education and management needs for sustainable resource use within coastal rain forest ecosystems;
  • Facilitate public policy discussions and foster greater public unde
