Serving Our Treasured Legacies
As we celebrate our 20th year of serving the National Park Service (NPS), Otak is proud to support the NPS mission “To conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and wildlife therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.”
Our team has been awarded a five-year contract with the NPS to provide socioeconomic research and planning services nationwide. This work includes in-park visitor surveys, visitor use and transportation studies, economic valuations and impact studies, partner and gateway community studies, non-visitor studies such as nationwide surveys of the American public, peer reviews of other socioeconomic work, and other services to inform ongoing planning and decision making in national parks. Our national parks are our treasured legacies that preserve our history and culture, as well as some of the most spectacular landscapes and natural features of our country. For these reasons, we find this work to be an incredibly rewarding and important part of what we do—we endeavor to serve the NPS as our client for life.
