Did you know that over 80 percent of all NPS lands are managed as wilderness? From Alaska to Florida, NPS wilderness areas encompass a unique and complex array of management considerations. In this webinar, learn about one interagency resource helping to equip NPS managers with the best available science to make informed wilderness stewardship decisions: the Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute. Meet the Institute’s staff, explore interdisciplinary research projects relevant to NPS wilderness, and find out ways collaborate on science in the future. This webinar is co-hosted by the NPS Wilderness Stewardship Division, part of the Visitor and Resource Protection Directorate, and the Natural Resource Stewardship and Science Directorate. Together, these NPS programs are bridging our organizational silos and joining forces for wilderness stewardship!
