ABSTRACT: National Park Service (NPS) inventory and monitoring (I&M) research is now being integrated with park web pages through content management system (CMS) technology. The Heartland Network is one of 32 networks in the NPS I&M Division. It conducts studies in 15 National Parks located in eight Midwestern states. Heartland I&M content includes monitoring studies of fish and aquatic invertebrate communities, white-tailed deer populations, breeding bird communities and plant communities. Each monitoring project is summarized in one web page that includes text, a photograph and a figure describing significant results. Links to references and further studies are provided. The NPS already uses CMS technology as an enterprise solution for each of its park web pages. Other parts of the Service, especially Natural Resources, have implemented highly customized software in order to integrate science-based information systems. With the migration of Natural Resource web pages to CMS technology, park web sites can now provide public access to the latest science from I&M and other NPS natural resource divisions along with their partner agencies. This effort should provide new resources for citizen science activities such as bioblitz events and group park visits which require natural resource interpretation.
