The National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring Program was designed to determine the cur-rent status and monitor long-term trends in the condition of park natural resources, providing park managers with a strong scientific foundation for making decisions and working with other agencies and the public to protect park ecosystems. The Southern Colorado Plateau Network (SCPN) is mon-itoring aquatic macroinvertebrates as an overall indicator of aquatic ecosystem integrity (Thomas et al. 2006).
