NPS workshops on natural resource assessments and lessons learned

Meeting at Monocacy National BattlefieldOn January 27, IAN staff Bill Dennison, Tim Carruthers, and Jane Thomas met with natural resource staff from Antietam National Battlefield, Monocacy National Battlefield, and Manassas National Battlefield Park, along with staff from the Inventory & Monitoring Program of the National Park Service (NPS) National Capital Region Network. The workshop focused on the outcomes from the ongoing natural resources condition assessments for these three cultural resource parks. An outcome from the workshop was the production of two 'lessons learned' brochures, based on some overarching themes and results from the assessments. These brochures were presented at the NPS Water Resources Division meeting at Fort Collins, Colorado.
