Final CCP - EIS

The final comprehensive conservation plan (CCP) and environmental impact statement (EIS) can be accessed below. These files are in .pdf format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader to view.

The final CCP/EIS is available to download below. It is divided into 7 chapters and 15 appendixes. We recognize that the final CCP/EIS is very lengthy, so we are posting a newsletter to highlight some of the changes between draft and final plans and to point readers to where they can find more detailed information in the full version of the final CCP/EIS. The newsletter includes a Reader’s Guide to help readers navigate the document. The reader’s guide lists, and briefly describes, all of the chapters and appendixes in the final CCP/EIS.
