This Habitat Management Plan (HMP) for the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge is a dynamic working document providing a decision-making process and guidance for managing Refuge habitat. The HMP defines a long-term vision, affording continuity and consistency for habitat management on Refuge lands. This HMP will be used in conjunction with the approved 2004 Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) (USFWS 2004). The HMP lifespan is 15 years (2014-2029). It will be reviewed every five years using adaptive management to assess and modify management activities as monitoring and priorities dictate.
