Aquatic and Wildlife Management Records. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks
The Division of Natural Resources Management in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks was created in 1976, and was the final division to be separated from the original Ranger function. One primary focus of the records concerns the interactions between bears and visitors. Additional records document the parks’ attempt to understand wildlife populations, particularly the status and movements of deer populations, monitoring the remaining bands of Sierra Big Horn Sheep, and data on other species such as marmots, peregrine falcons, and spotted owls. Aquatic Management records document the health of aquatic ecosystems, including impacts of acid rain deposition and introduced fish populations. The branch added an aquatic biologist in 2005 to manage the recovery of local amphibian species, particularly the Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog. Additional aquatic records include surveys of Western Pond Turtle populations.
This collection consists of scientific field data, field notes, plans, reports, articles, correspondence, reference material, research, maps, resources, aerial photographs, personal notes, meeting notes, data logs, manuals, protocols, surveys, regulations, development impact studies, publications, environmental assessments, statements, comments, contract modifications, contract renewals, permits, strategy, and budget and staffing records relating to Wildlife Management in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Specific topics include Aquatic and Terrestrial Resources, Fire Management and Impact, and Compliance records. This collection is organized into five series: Aquatic Resources, Terrestrial Resources, Fire Management and Impact, Administrative Files, and Park Wide Project Review.
