The program is administered by the Geologic Resources Division in collaboration with other NRSS divisions and offices, NPS Youth Programs Division, and in partnership with Greening Youth Foundation and Environment for the Americas.

Natural resource science disciplines covered in the Mosaics in Science Program include air resources, biological resources, climate change science, geologic resources, natural sounds, night skies, and water resources. Multidisciplinary science projects, or those that cross program areas (e.g. interpretation/education, combined with research, inventorying, monitoring) are encouraged.
