Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown
Western Ecological Research Center - Headquarters
Science Center Objects
WERC is headquartered on the campus of California State University Sacramento and is aptly known as the ‘center without walls.’ The Center's headquarters houses management and administrative staff that support the dispersed science structure of WERC scientists which are located at or near ecosystems aligned with their expertise and often co-located with or near DOI partners at field stations in California and Nevada bioregions.
Rather than a centralized infrastructure common to many USGS research organizations, WERC scientists are located at or near ecosystems aligned with their expertise often co-located with or near DOI partners. The Center's headquarters houses management and administrative staff that support this dispersed science structure. Designed for on-the-ground, high quality scientific response to priority resource issues, field stations, located in California and Nevada bioregions, form the core of WERC's science program.
