The goal of this agreement is to facilitate a collaborative working relationship for mutual benefit to accomplish botanical and environmental monitoring and assessment work in alpine environments in National Parks, including conducting surveys of the mountaintop plant community according to the international GLORIA protocol; organizing, training, and leading a diverse group of students and citizen scientists recruited from diverse communities with a special focus on BIPOC communities, academic institutions, and state/federal agencies to assist with these surveys; providing citizen-scientist participants a safe, educational, and meaningful experience in a remote setting; and analyzing, publishing, and presenting research findings on alpine and montane ecosystems within National Park Service boundaries on a timeline in accordance with partner needs. The objectives of this agreement include those needed to conduct the monitoring of alpine vegetation (both forested and non-forested areas found at the highest elevations) within National Parks, the citizen-science outreach, and the dissemination of the science related to those monitoring efforts.
