Abstract From 2009 through 2011, acoustic monitoring systems were deployed at 14 locations throughout North Cascades National Park Complex (NOCA). The purpose of this monitoring effort was to complete a baseline inventory of the acoustical environment of NOCA. The inventory was initiated in 2006 and in 2009 NOCA received funding to acquire equipment, employ one to two technicians, and analyze the data. This report summarizes the findings of the inventory efforts that took place from 2009 through 2011.
