    Description

    The National Park Service has developed the Visitor Experience and Resource Protection (VERP) framework for addressing carrying capacity in the National Parks. This framework has been successfully applied to natural and recreational resources in diverse units of the National Park System. However, most units of the National Park System also contain significant cultural resources. This paper outlines how the VERP framework might be applied to cultural resources, the challenges this may present, and some suggestions of how to meet these challenges.
