Science collaboration and exchange of research results has been a core priority of HOCP from the outset. To that end, the science committee (members below) presents a lecture series, a database of current and past research, and offers a voluntary advisory role on approaches to science in the Border Lakes Ecoregion (the “Heart of the Continent” Region).

Core HOCP Science Collaboration Efforts

HOCP Science Committee: The science committee (members below) offers a voluntary advisory role on approaches to science in the Border Lakes Eco-region (the “Heart of the Continent” Region). We coordinate the lecture series. We assist with cooperation among two or more partner agencies in applications for research funding and in research dissemination. We meet periodically in person and between times by teleconference. Feel free to contact any of us!
