The Caribou-Poker Creeks Research Watershed (CPCRW) is a 104 km2 basin north of Fairbanks, Alaska. The watershed is reserved for ecological, hydrological, and climatic research. It is owned jointly by the State of Alaska and the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Much of the research is done by the Bonanza Creek Long Term Ecological Research Program and the Water and Environmental Research Center. The entrance to the Research Watershed is located on the Steese Highway about 31 miles from Fairbanks. Access is restricted, and permission for access or to conduct research can be obtained by contacting the lead Principal Investigator, Terry Chapin, or the Site Coordinator, Jamie Hollingsworth.
