Natural Resource Condition Assessment Program

The Natural Resource Condition Assessment (NRCA) Program evaluates the condition of natural resources in parks. Condition assessments document current conditions, evaluate trends, identify critical data gaps, and help us understand how drivers and stressors influence conditions. Project findings provide credible science to assist park managers with planning, management, and stewardship activities.
