Comprehensive Conservation PlanningThe purpose of a 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 – will be described in the CCP. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s preferred alternative for managing the Refuge and its effects on the human environment, will also be described in the CCP. The planning process is anticipated to be underway in spring 2013.
