Research in Theodore Roosevelt National Park
The National Park Service (NPS) recognizes that science must play an increasingly central role in designing responsible and sustainable use and management activities of the national parks. In addition to the use of science as a means to improve park management, parks can be centers for broad scientific research and inquiry. Therefore, the NPS will facilitate research in parks where it can be done without impairing other park values.
