National Parks: Resource Condition Assessments/Resource Stewardship Strategy

Looking north from the Canon Brook trail.

I co-authored the recently-published Resource Condition Assessment for Acadia National Park (Natural Resource Report NPS/NRPC/WRD/NRR-2008/069). I am also co-authoring three other such reports: for CACO (Cape Cod Nat’l Seashore), BOHA (Boston Harbor Islands), and SAIR (Saugus Ironworks). These reports seek to compile data, coordinate research findings, and perform new analyses of existing data to assess the current state of the Park’s resources, and determine threats and stressors to the resources. I am also working on a Resource Stewardship Strategy for BOHA, in which we will identify and prioritize science-based strategies for achieving and maintaining desired future conditions for the Park.
