This is the account for the Eastern Rivers and Mountains Inventory and Monitoring Network in the National Park Service- one of 32 NPS Inventory and Monitoring Networks across the country established to conduct baseline resource inventories and implement sustained natural resource monitoring. Check out our website for more information.

The nine parks in the Network are:
Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site
Bluestone National Scenic River
Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area
Fort Necessity National Battlefield
Friendship Hill National Historic Site
Gauley River National Recreation Area
Johnstown Flood National Memorial
New River Gorge National Park and Preserve
Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River

Our Network asks your help in looking out for invasive species in our parks. Your observations will be added to these projects:

Specifically, we are looking for invasive species that are not yet established in our parks, so that park managers can control or eradicate the species before they become so. Keep an eagle eye out for those species by using our Early Detection guides:
