Science Communication Support for the Sierra Nevada Network: The Sequoia Parks Conservancy (SPC), the National Park Service Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks (SEKI), and Sierra Nevada Inventory & Monitoring program propose to work together to develop science communication materials and to partner in the distribution and delivery of those materials and messages to the public. The SPC has strong community partnerships and expertise in education and interpretation within these two national parks. SIEN provides the network parks with scientific information for managers, visitors, service learners, and agency and university partners in a variety of formats. The NPS I&M Program is a leader in the translation and communication of scientific products through peer-reviewed publications, web-based applications, social media, video production, as well as written materials for interpreters and public audiences. Here we propose to partner with SPC to help develop science communication products suitable for both professional and lay audiences, which will allow NPS and SPC educators, resource managers, and scientists to amplify and share the results of scientific research and monitoring activities in the parks. These will include, but are not limited to a network-wide newsletter, resource briefs, a video highlighting subalpine forest monitoring, development of webpages, and the publication of technical reports. We will also work together to support the California Naturalist training being hosted by SPC in October of 2017. Personnel from SPC and NPS will collaborate to produce a network-wide newsletter highlighting long-term monitoring projects, resource briefs describing the results of technical reports and publications, and the development of webpages that link the science communications efforts and messaging of SPC, SEKI, CECH, and SIEN. SIEN will provide the services of a professional videographer (working under contract with the national I&M program) to develop a video showcasing the long-term monitoring of Sierra Nevada ecosystems. These projects will provide educational and outreach materials for the delivery of science communication to a wide variety of audiences.
