Tracking the Integrity of Our Natural Systems

The Southern Colorado Plateau Network is one of 32 Inventory and Monitoring Networks across the U.S. The National Park Service established these networks to inventory natural resources in parks and track their condition. This information helps managers to make decisions about the natural resources in their parks.

The Southern Colorado Plateau Network comprises 19 national park units located in the stunning landscapes of northern Arizona, northwestern New Mexico, southwestern Colorado and southern Utah.
