The delicate balance of life in the park will be continually shaped by the climate.
Concentrations of invisible pollutants in the air can reach a tipping point and affect park resources.
Consistently monitoring water bodies throughout the park is necessary to preserve this vital resource.
The story of Rocky's foundation is still being written as time passes.
Maintaining natural processes from root to crown helps sustain healthy ecosystems.
Night Sky and Natural Sounds
Opportunities for star gazing and quiet solitude compete with Rocky's proximity to Colorado's Front Range.
Environmental Diseases and Pests
Natural diseases are part of the built-in maintenance of Rocky's natural ecosystems.
Introduced species can negatively affect those that are naturally found in the park.
Our presence in these environments can also affect natural processes.
