Comprehensive Conservation Plan
The revised Kenai National Wildlife Refuge Comprehensive Conservation Plan and Environmental Impact Statement was published in two volumes with a separate summary. Volume one contains the background, issues, and analysis. Volume two contains the supporting appendices.

The Plan incorporates changes based on comments received on the Draft Plan. Those comments and our responses are presented in Volume 2 Appendix D. Most comments required only that we clarify or make minor corrections to the text.

Most people will be unaffected by changes in Refuge management. For example, there will be no changes to how dog mushing activities can be performed on the Refuge.

There will be no formal public review of this final Plan and EIS, however, comment received by September 28, 2009, will be considered as we prepared the Record of Decision. the Record of Decision will complete the comprehensive conservation planning process for Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.
