Monitoring Ecosystems from Mountains to Maritime

The Southeast Alaska Inventory & Monitoring Network consists of four parks in Southeast Alaska: Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, Sitka National Historical Park and coastal Wrangell-St Elias National Park and Preserve. In those parks, we collect information on plants, animals, water, and climate. Then we analyze the data and share the results.

Understanding the resources, their condition, and how they are changing, can help park managers make sound decisions about the future. With our science, parks can develop a stronger basis for stewardship and management of their natural resources. In this way, we help to ensure that our national natural treasures are conserved, unimpaired, for future generations.
