Managing Park Resources
Stewardship of park resources includes guiding research that will inform complex management decisions and suggest novel approaches to management issues. A Resource Stewardship Strategy now under development prioritizes research needs and management actions for protecting natural and cultural resources.
The purpose of a Resource Stewardship Strategy is to:
- Guide our investments in funding, planning, and implementing resource stewardship activities
- Track and evaluate resource stewardship progress
- Integrate climate-change adaptation and novel ways of thinking about resource stewardship under changing conditions
