Working Group Meeting Calendar
Working Group Focus
The working groups will focus on five impact topics: wildlife, air quality and soundscape, human dimensions, operations and technology and the non-commercially guided snowmobile access program. Each working group will develop a monitoring strategy for its impact topic in coordination with a National Park Service subject-matter expert. Specifically, working groups are tasked with providing feedback on what resource or impact questions should be monitored to address key scientific uncertainties about their impact topic, and on how to design a fiscally sustainable, efficient and feasible monitoring strategy to achieve key monitoring objectives going forward. Park managers will then use the results of winter use monitoring and stakeholder input to make decisions that best protect park resources and the visitor experience.
