The Walnut Creek Center for Education and Research (WCCER)
Founded in 1998, The Walnut Creek Center for Education and Research (WCCER) is a partnership between Prescott College, Northern Arizona University, The Arboretum at Flagstaff, and Prescott National Forest.
WCCER occupies the Forest Service’s decommissioned Walnut Creek Station and administrative site. A diversity of researchers, students, and public visitors utilize the 275-acre site of Arizona uplands and riparian gallery forest each year. WCCER has completed a biological inventory grant from the Arizona Department of Water Resources. In its relatively short history, the WCCER has blossomed with diverse scientific projects.
