Cedar Creek Research Proposal
All proposals for new research at Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve are reviewed by the Associate Director, other researchers who have existing projects that may be impacted by the proposed work, and, as needed, the Land Use Committee. No research may be initiated until a proposal has been reviewed and approved. Decisions are typically made within two weeks of proposal submission, though some proposals require more or less time for evaluation.

Note that your progress will not be automatically saved when completing this form. Thus, you are encouraged to copy your responses from a separate document and paste them below.
