Park Studies Lab Research Featured by National Park Service

Research conducted by the Park Studies Lab was featured by the National Park Service in their publication InsideNPS. This program of research helped Muir Woods National Monument identify stand-ards of quality for visitor-caused noise in the park and evaluate an experimental management program aimed at reducing visitor-caused noise and promoting "natural quiet." The park has now des-ignated Cathedral Woods as a "quiet zone."
