Effective long-term management and stewardship of natural resources in the Mojave Desert Network begins with knowing just what resources are in our parks. To find out, the National Park Service conducted inventories to gather baseline information about the parks.
The national Inventory and Monitoring Division provides guidance, funding, and technical assistance for a set of basic natural resource inventories at all parks with significant natural resources. The results of these inventories provide a common starting point for establishing long-term monitoring. More information is about these inventories is available on the national I&M inventory page.
