Greetings! Please join us for a brown bag presentation with Brett A. Wright, Ph.D. Professor and Chairman, Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management at Clemson University.

The Open Parks Network (OPN) is a visionary suite of tools that uses cyberinfrastructure to unite the highly diverse community of parks and protected areas managers with highly distributed parks-related information created and collected by agencies, research labs, universities, libraries, and interested organizations.

Representatives from Clemson University's Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management (PRTM), CU Libraries, and Clemson Computing & Information Technology (CCIT) have worked to create a prototype in partnership with the Southeast Region of the National Parks Service and the World Bank's Global Tiger Initiative.

The Open Parks Network has been designed to provide busy park professionals "one-stop shopping" for park related research and data management platforms in order to better disseminate the vast amount of knowledge existing in the broad field of park and protected area management.

About the Presenter:
