Parks in this Network
Southern Plains Network
The SOPN I&M Program is one of 32 National Park Service I&M Networks across the country established to facilitate collaboration, information sharing, and economies of scale in natural resource monitoring. It is comprised of 11 national park units, each of which contain a rich and varied array of natural and cultural resources. These parks and their partners are dedicated to understanding and preserving the region's unique resources through science and education.
This web site delivers information about these resources and the scientific activities underway in the SOPN. Learn more about what we're doing by exploring the links on the left or visit our park unit pages to find out about the resources found at each of these special places.
