A JFSP Fire Science Exchange Network
Bringing People Together & Sharing Knowledge in the Northern Rockies

Research Institutions

The Northern Rockies Fire Science Network is a resource for managers and scientists involved in fire and fuels management in the Rocky Mountains of Idaho, Montana, Washington, and Wyoming. There are a lot of valuable institutions in our region that support fire science research, education, and management.

NRFSN collaborates with:

  • four regional universities (Montana State University, University of Montana, Salish Kootenai College, University of Idaho),
  • a regional U.S. Forest Service center (Rocky Mountain Research Station),
  • three U.S. Forest Service forestry science labs (Bozeman Forestry Sciences Laboratory, Missoula Forestry Sciences Laboratory, Moscow Forestry Sciences Laboratory),
  • a regional U.S. Geological Survey center (Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center), and
  • an interagency wilderness science institute (Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute).

The NRFSN region encompasses a wide geographical area that includes nine experimental forests and demonstration sites.
