Public input


 

As this project develops, we welcome input from stakeholders and the general public at any time, however there will be two specific periods when we actively solicit public input:

Spring, 2013 - Your input sought on draft planning documents

We are pleased to announce the public review of the Draft Land Protection Plan and Environmental Assessment (Draft LPP/EA) for the proposed establishment of Mountain Bogs National Wildlife Refuge.

The assessment outlines the actions proposed to conserve and protect rare and severely threatened wetlands in the Southern Appalachian Mountains of eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina. In the assessment, two alternatives and their potential impacts on the environment are evaluated.

We welcome any comments or recommendations you have concerning this proposal. To be considered in the preparation of the final Environmental Assesment/Land Protection Plan, your comments must be received no later than April 10, 2013.

Comments on the draft documents should be directed to: Oliver Vand Den Ende, Project Planner, Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge Comples, 2700 Refuge Headquarters Rd., Decatur, Alabama 305603; telephone 256/353-7243, ext. 28; or mountainbogs@fws.gov.

Requests for further information, or requests for paper copies of the documents should be directed to: Gary Peeples, 160 Zillicoa St., Asheville, NC; or gary_peeples@fws.gov; or 828/258-3939, ext. 234.
