The purpose of a CCP is to specify a management direction for the Refuge for up to 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 Service’s preferred alternative for managing the Refuge and its effects on the human environment, are described in the CCP as well.
The Stillwater NWR Complex CCP was one of the first to be written for the Pacific Region in 2002, and will be considered for revision in the next few years. Public input will be critical to ensure a viable future for this Refuge Complex.
