For over 30 years, Manomet's scientists have been improving an understanding of natural systems and assembling strong working partnerships to address environmental issues. On the basis of solid science, Manomet brings together all of those with a stake in a particular environmental matter-communities, individuals, universities, government agencies, businesses-and guides them through cooperative, science-base,d solution development. Programs cover a variety of conservation topics including bird conservation, emphasizing avian research during the center's initial 25 years, and also focusing upon wetlands and wildlife, and regional conservation planning.
