Environmental Research Center (UNDERC)
The University of Notre Dame Environmental Research Center, UNDERC-East, is a 8,000-acre pristine wilderness on the Michigan-Wisconsin border. It provides the opportunity for year-round field ecology research, with a focus on forest, aquatic, insect, and vertebrate ecology research, in a location protected from human disturbance. The property has on-site modern laboratories, including a lakeside wet laboratory.
UNDERC-West is located in Western Montana with research access to the National Bison Range and the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes’ Flathead Reservation. It provides research opportunities and modules in the areas of grassland, montane, wildlife, and Native American Ecology.
