We have developed the following list of issues, concerns and opportunities to address in the Sivio O. Conte NFWR CCP based on input from the public, our conservation partners, State and Federal agencies, as well from the Service. This input was gathered through public scoping meetings, an Issues Workbook questionnaire, CCP planning team meetings, inter- and intra-agency coordination meetings, and exchanges between Refuge staff and individuals or groups. We have divided the issues, concerns, and opportunities into 7 broad categories: landscape-level (regional) conservation, habitat management, species management, public use, socio economic, community relations, and administrative.
