Resource Stewardship Strategy
In October 2017, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks’ completed a Resource Stewardship Strategy (RSS) to help guide park management through the coming years. The RSS is a long-range strategic planning tool that is informed by current, accurate science. The purpose of the RSS is to:
- guide funding, planning, and implementation of resource stewardship activities, including science, direct management, and education;
- track and evaluate progress in resource stewardship; and
- integrate new ways of thinking about resource stewardship, including management tools that take into account the realities of climate change.
Resource stewardship activities span direct management, science, education, and their interconnections (see diagram to right).
