What We Inventory

Southwest Alaska Network natural resource inventories are extensive, point-in-time efforts to determine the location or condition of resources. Alaska’s Inventories assess and document the current condition and knowledge of natural resources in Alaska’s parks, providing a solid baseline for long-term monitoring and management.

The national Inventory and Monitoring Division provides guidance, funding, and technical assistance for a set of 12 basic natural resource inventories at all parks with significant natural resources. These basic inventories are intended to provide park managers with the minimum information needed to effectively manage the natural resources of their parks.

Species lists are available from NPSpecies, a National Park Service tool to document park biodiversity. Keep in mind that species lists are always a work in progress; changes and updates are made as we learn more. If a species does not appear on a list, it doesn't necessarily mean it is not found in the park.
