Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve is a large ecological research site in central Minnesota with natural habitats that represent the entire state. There is no place of comparable biological diversity so close to the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Cedar Creek is owned and operated by the University of Minnesota
Research at Cedar Creek focuses on understanding the fundamental processes and principles that govern the dynamics and functioning of communities and ecosystems. We explore topics of fundamental scientific interest, as well as those relevant to current environmental change.
