INR Corvallis

The Institute for Natural Resources-Corvallis (INR-Corvallis) is the headquarters of the Oregon University System's Institute for Natural Resources (INR) based at Oregon State University (OSU). INR was created by the Oregon Legislature and OSU in 2001 as an independent institute in the OSU Research Office.  

INR-Corvallis staff work closely with staff at INR-Portland to increase the utility of integrated, science-based information in the development and understanding of natural resource and environmental policy by bridging science and decision-making efforts.
