Old Point Loma Lighthouse at Cabrillo National Monument

Executive Summary

The mission of the National Park Service is to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of national parks for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. NPS Management Policies (2006) state: “The Service will also strive to ensure that park resources and values are passed on to future generations in a condition that is as good as, or better than, the conditions that exist today.”

As part of the stewardship of national parks for the American people, the NPS has begun to develop State of the Park reports to assess the overall status and trends of each park’s resources. The NPS will use this information to improve park priority setting and to synthesize and communicate complex park condition information to the public in a clear and simple way.

The purpose of this State of the Park report for Cabrillo National Monument is to:

  1. Provide to visitors and the American public a snapshot of the status and trends in the condition of a park’s priority resources and values.
  2. Summarize and communicate complex scientific, scholarly, and park operations factual information and expert opinion using non-technical language and a visual format.
  3. Highlight park stewardship activities and accomplishments to maintain or improve the State of the Park.
  4. Identify key issues and challenges facing the park to help inform park management planning.
