A National Park Service Workshop was held at the Chattanooga Choo Choo, a hotel/conference center in the converted railroad station in Chattanooga, Tennessee in June. The workshop was entitled "Integrating Science with Park Management Decisions" and included discussions between park superintendents, resource managers and scientists from the Inventory and Monitoring Program. Issues included science communication, barriers to effectiveness, thresholds, web tools, printed products, and assessment approaches. Bill Dennison and Shawn Carter presented the approach being developed in the National Capital Region Network parks and facilitated a session in which managers and scientists identified issues and proposed activities to enhance collaborations. This workshop continued to build on the strong partnership developed between the Integration and Application Network with the Inventory and Monitoring Program of the National Park Service.
