National Research Highlights
The Weeks Act of 1911 enabled the newly established U.S. Forest Service to restore land and watersheds. One hundred and six years later, agency work continues in both familiar and new landscapes. In urban areas, where land reclamation and restoration enables holistic change, Forest Service scientists and their partners are helping transform vacant and abandoned lots, neglected neighborhoods, overlooked communities, and polluted watersheds into places where residents want to live, work, and play.
IITF and NRS officially established charters for Urban Research Stations in San Juan, Puerto Rico and Baltimore, Chicago, New York City, and Philadelphia to develop and deliver knowledge that contributes to the understanding of urban social-ecological systems and the adaptation of practices that lead to sustainable, resilient, equitable, and healthy urban environments. The charters formalized long-standing field station investments.
