Management plan proposed for Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released a draft comprehensive conservation plan for Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge in Massachusetts. The draft plan proposes three alternatives, including a preferred alternative, that were evaluated for management of the refuge for the next 15 years. It also provides an analysis of the potential effects on the environment from implementing each alternative. The refuge maintains habitat for migratory birds, threatened and endangered species and provides unique outdoor recreation opportunities for visitors. The document will be available for public comment for 60 days through June 9, 2014.
