Comprehensive Conservation Planning
The purpose of a comprehensive conservation plan (CCP) is to specify a management direction for the refuge for the next 15 years. The goals, objectives, and strategies for improving refuge conditions—including the types of habitat we will provide, partnership opportunities and management actions needed to achieve desired conditions – are described in the CCP.
The Eastern Massachusetts National Wildlife Refuge Complex encompasses eight national wildlife refuges (NWRs): Assabet River, Great Meadows, Mashpee, Massasoit, Monomoy, Nantucket, Nomans Land, and Oxbow NWRs. Due to the size of this complex, we have divided our comprehensive conservation planning (CCP) process into several phases.
