The Sonoran Desert Network (SODN) is one of 32 National Park Service inventory and monitoring networks. These networks monitor the condition of park ecosystems.
SODN is responsible to a Board of Directors and Technical Committee composed of park superintendents and staff who participate on a rotational basis. Program guidance and oversight is provided by the National Park Service's Inventory and Monitoring Division. The network leverages staff and resources by engaging in a number of partnerships.
