A Survey of Bat Species Composition, Distribution and Relative Abundance North Cascades National Park Service Complex, Washington
North Cascades National Park Service Complex, comprising North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake National Recreation Area, and Lake Chelan National Recreation Area, was established in October, 1968 and is located in northwestern Washington. North Cascades National Park was established to preserve certain majestic mountain scenery, snow fields, glaciers, alpine meadows, and other unique natural features in the North Cascades mountains for the benefit, use, and inspiration of present and future generations. Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas were established to provide for outdoor recreation use and enjoyment and to conserve scenic, scientific, historic, and other values contributing to public enjoyment of these lands and waters. The National Park Service disseminates results of biological, physical, or social science research through the Natural Resources Technical Report Series. Natural resources inventories and monitoring activities, scientific literature reviews, bibliographies, and proceedings of technical workshops or conferences are also disseminated through this series. Documents in this series usually contain information of a preliminary nature and are prepared primarily for internal use within the National Park Service. This information is not intended for use in open literature. Mention of trade names or commercial products does not constitute endorsement or recommendation for use by the National Park Service.
