Parks in this Network
Creating resource inventories for national parks is a primary objective of the Inventory and Monitoring Program. These provide data to inform immediate management decisions, as well as establish baseline levels required to estimate trends in resource conditions. I&M program guidelines require a specific set of inventories be completed nation-wide.
Inventory creation is organized at the national level, employing specialized work teams to comprehensively develop baseline resource data that is compiled in a consistent manner throughout the country. Coordination of selected SEAN-area inventories is performed by Alaska regional office staff, who oversee the expert teams and ensure their final products are complete and available to users.
Printed reports from SEAN-area inventory projects are available on our Reports and Publications page.
