Preservation of natural resources condition is important to Weir Farm National Historic Site's managers. Through a partnership with the Northeast Temperate Network Inventory and Monitoring staff, park water quality, breeding bird abundance, and forest health are monitored on a regular basis. These three vital signs help the park to gauge any changes in environmental condition, and can alert managers of threats to the resources.
