In tune with public support for improving conditions on National Wildlife Refuges, we are dedicated to completing a Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) for each refuge in the Northeast Region by 2012. A CCP provides management direction for a refuge for 15 years by documenting desired future conditions and management actions needed to achieve them; serving as a guide to improve refuge habitat and infrastructure for wildlife conservation and refuge visitors.

On January 9, 2009, our Regional Director selected Alternative B from the Lake Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge Final CCP/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for implementation. This decision represents over six years of work among federal and state agencies, local and regional officials and communities, conservation organizations and user groups.

To learn more about the planning process, or to view our Draft and Final CCP/EIS, please visit our Refuge Planning Website.
