What We Inventory

Natural resource inventories are extensive, point-in-time efforts to determine the location or condition of resources. Alaska’s Inventories assess and document the current condition and knowledge of natural resources in Alaska’s parks, providing a solid baseline for long-term monitoring and management.

The national Inventory and Monitoring Division provides guidance, funding, and technical assistance for a set of 12 basic natural resource inventories at all parks with significant natural resources. These basic inventories are intended to provide park managers with the minimum information needed to effectively manage the natural resources of their parks.

Species Lists

Species lists are available from NPSpecies, the National Park Service's tool for documenting park biodiversity. Species lists are always works in progress: changes and updates are made as we learn more, and the absence of a species from a list doesn't necessarily mean the species is absent from a park.
