The West Central Research and Outreach Center is located in Morris, Minn., on the edge of the prairie. Our location gives us the unique opportunity to manage organic farmland, harness the power of the wind, and conduct studies under regional conditions.
We are located approximately 155 miles northwest of Minneapolis, Minn., and 110 miles southeast of Fargo, N.D. The WCROC is one mile east of the University of Minnesota, Morris campus. Look for the wind turbines to guide you.
