50 Years of DRI: Balancing the Needs of Nature and Humankind

Established by the Nevada Legislature in 1959, DRI is a stand-alone educational and research institution of the Nevada System of Higher Education. DRI scientists have traveled from their desert home to the far reaches of the globe to study the air, the land, the water and life forms in many environments. They have investigated the forces of nature and the needs of people in their search for answers.
