About the Appalachian Highlands Network

A multi-level organizational structure ensures accountability and efficiency of the Appalachian Highlands Inventory & Monitoring Network program. The Network is responsible to a Board of Directors and Technical Committee composed of park superintendents and staff who participate on a rotating basis. Program guidance and oversight is provided by the Inventory & Monitoring Division of the National Park Service's Washington Office.

The Network consists of four permanent NPS personnel who work closely with each park's natural resources program to develop and implement long-term monitoring and provide sound scientific information to park managers.
