John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum Comprehensive Conservation Planning
Latest CCP News
We completed the Final Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) for John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum in August 2012. The Draft CCP and Environmental Assessment (EA) was released in March 2012. The Final CCP represents years of work among Federal and State agencies, local and regional officials and communities, conservation organizations, and user groups.
To learn more about the development of the CCP, check out the planning newsletters.
The CCP is required of all national wildlife refuges by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997 (PL 105-57). The CCP is a 15-year plan designed to provide strategic management direction that best achieves the refuge’s purposes; attains the vision and goals developed for the refuge; contributes to the National Wildlife Refuge System mission; addresses key challenges, issues and relevant mandates; and is consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management.
