Our Progress: Best Management Practices & Accomplishments
Goals and objectives are the engine that drives the Integrated Environmental Plan (IEP) forward on a year-by-year basis. They are focused upon identified significant impacts, thus allowing park staff to focus their resources on what is most important during any given annual cycle. Over a longer term, goals and objectives are related to our future visions in that they demonstrate whether progress over time is on a trajectory to attain the associated future vision.
