The Rocky Mountain Network is one of 32 vital signs monitoring networks across the National Park Service (NPS). The Rocky Mountain Network comprises six units: Glacier National Park, Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site, and Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, Montana; and Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, and Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. The six Rocky Mountain Network parks are located in the central and southern Rocky Mountain Cordillera, roughly along a NNW–SSE axis that follows the Continental Divide. Although this is an extremely diverse region, all six Rocky Mountain Network parks share ecological similarities. These units also have a tradition of working together and are within the same NPS region.
