Wind River Field Station is located in south-central Washington state, USA, on the Thornton Taft Munger Research Natural Area (RNA) adjacent to the Wind River Experimental Forest and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. RNAs are part of a national network of ecological areas designated in perpetuity for research and education and to maintain biological diversity on National Forest System lands. T. T. Munger RNA encompasses one of the few remaining old-growth forest ecosystems in the Pacific Northwest.


Wind River Field Station participates in several environmental monitoring networks and provides research opportunities for students and professionals in environmental and forest sciences. The program operates under a Special Use Permit with USFS Gifford Pinchot National Forest, USFS Pacific Northwest Research Station, and University of Washington's School of Environmental and Forest Sciences.
