NWRC Archives

The National Wildlife Research Center (NWRC) Archive collects, preserves and makes available records and materials that document the history of the NWRC.

About: The archives, established in 1990, hold permanent organizational records created by the National Wildlife Research Center. Records include NWRC Director's Office records, Annual Wildlife Services (WS) State Reports, Bird Damage Research Reports, International Program records, EPA and FDA pesticide registration documents for the NWRC, print and broadcast media stories concerning NWRC, chemical methods documentation, and several image collections.

History of the NWRC Archives: The NWRC archive was initially founded to store GLP study data and records. The archive began accumulating large amounts of institutional records. As the collections of both types of materials grew, the NWRC Archives split into 2 separate archives—the NWRC Organizational Archives and the Quality Assurance Unit Archives. Due to reorganization in 2000, the Records Manager/Archivist became responsible solely for historical and organizational records, while the QAU records became the responsibility of QAU staff. 

NWRC History:  The NWRC Archive creates exhibits, writes history features, and creates other content on NWRC history. For more information visit the the NWRC History page

Location, Hours and Access: The NWRC Archive is located in the National Wildlife Research Center in Fort Collins, CO. Due to the nature of the archive, access is by appointment only. The archive is open from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday.
