Sonny Bono Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge Complex Comprehensive Conservation Plan
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is developing a Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) and an
environmental assessment (EA) for the Sonny Bono Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge
Complex, which includes the Sonny Bono Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge and the
Coachella Valley National Wildlife Refuge. The purpose of the CCP and an overview of the CCP
process is provided in the Planning Update 1 (pdf. 482KB).
Public scoping for the CCP began in September 2010 and public scoping meetings were held on September 14 and Septmeber 21, 2010. The results of this initial scoping process are summarized in Planning Update 2 (pdf. 488KB.
This Planning Update also outlines the various management alternatives that we propose to evaluate for the Sonny Bono Salton Sea NWR and the Coachella Valley NWR.
We are seeking your comments regarding the proposed alternatives. To ensure that your comments are considered, please provide them no later that February 27, 2012. Information about where to send your comments is provided in Planning Update 2.
