Description: (1) The project addresses public purpose in that the NPS presence on campus provides students and staff exposure to the parks and the science that occurs there. NPS cooperates with NMSU in planning and developing educational, mentoring, and intern opportunities that benefit NMSUâ¿¿s education goals while furthering knowledge about resources in parks. Students use their new knowledge to work on public land research questions and management. Specifically, students gain experience with information technology, data management, and/or GIS. In addition, students can assist Network staff or cooperators with data collection in the field and the lab as well as write non-technical reports or resource briefs that will be used by park interpretive staff and distributed to the general public.
