dc.description.abstractThe national park system contains many small units which were originally created for reasons other than outstanding water resources. One such unit, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park (ICE.M0) receives only minimum funding levels for water resources management activities despite supporting stable aquatic ecosystems and impressive natural assemblages which differ drastically from developed areas just outside of the unit boundaries. In recognition of the important aquatic resources at KEMO the, Southeast Regional Office of the National Park Service supports a high school student-assisted water resources monitoring program there and at four other parks in the region. The program aids in developing baseline aquatic biological and water quality information for a holistic treatment of threats to these resources. Reports are generated on a semi-annual basis which suggest possible problems and discuss what "normal" conditions and seasonal variations at the park appear to be. Thus far, the work of high school students has proved to be an invaluable resource for the investigation of threats and the implementation of corrective actions.en_US
