Comprehensive Conservation Planning


Refuge conservation plans are called “Comprehensive Conservation Plans” (CCPs). The Comprehensive Conservation Plan is intended to outline how the refuge will fulfill its legal purpose and contribute to the National Wildlife Refuge System's wildlife, habitat and public use goals. The plan outlines management goals for the next 15 years and specifies the objectives and strategies needed to accomplish these goals. While the planned future condition is long-term, we anticipate that the plan will be updated every 5 to 10 years based on information gained through monitoring habitat and wildlife, as well as recreational usage. The Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge CCP was approved and completed in 2005.
