Rock Creek Park Natural Resource Condition Assessment

Rock Creek Park (ROCR) is a forest and wetland oasis in the heart of Washington, D.C. A National Park Service natural resource condition assessment (NPS NRCA) was conducted using two synthetic frameworks: 1) an ecological monitoring framework, and 2) a habitat monitoring framework. Data metrics and thresholds were determined and monitoring data applied. This report is the result of the assessment and can be used by park management who are faced with many ecological challenges as a consequence of its urban surroundings.
