The Office of Education and Outreach (OEO) applies communication expertise to convey natural resource topics, issues, and management activities to the public, NPS employees, and partners. The Natural Resource Stewardship & Science (NRSS) Priorities Framework, specifically the Science Access and Engagement pillar, is the foundation for OEO communication goals. We provide communication support for work conducted within NRSS, and in turn, our work supports the other three pillars.
NRSS communication aims to do the following:
- Engage new audiences in science and stewardship
- Elevate visibility of science and stewardship in the NPS
- Increase awareness of park values and resource topics and issues
- Provide science communication leadership in the NPS
