Map showing Great Lakes parks and office

The Great Lakes Network is one of 32 National Park Service inventory and monitoring networks across the country that make up the Inventory and Monitoring Division. We conduct long-term monitoring of critical natural resources in nine parks in Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.

Our work is guided by a Board of Directors composed of park superintendents and a Technical Committee made up of park resource managers.

Our office is located on the south shore of Lake Superior, in Ashland, Wisconsin, though there are staff duty stationed at Voyageurs and Isle Royale National Parks.
