Land Management Research and Demonstration Areas (LMRDs) are places where new habitat management techniques and approaches are developed, implemented and showcased - places where professional land managers and others come to learn about cutting edge habitat management techniques and technology and carry back with them the information and knowledge which allows them to better manage their own lands. Rachel Carson and Parker River NWRs are partners in a Land Management Research and Demonstration Area. LMRDs serve as institutions of investigation, innovation and instruction in wildlife and habitat management.
