Every year, NERI contributes to our knowledge of Pacific Northwest ecosystems by:

  • conducting research led by NERI associates,

  • sponsoring (with time, resources, and/or grant seed money) research and habitat restoration work carried out by students, non-profit organizations, and other researchers in the region,

  • acting as fiscal agent and partner on grants to keep grant overhead costs low.

Below is a list of projects NERI has conducted and/or sponsored since our beginnings in 1985. For more information on how NERI can partner with you on your project, please contact us at
