The National Park Service invests in planning to ensure that decisions it makes are as effective and efficient as possible in carrying out the NPS mission. That mission is to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the national park system for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations and to cooperate with partners to extend the benefits of resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world.
Fire Island National Seashore is in the process of developing a new General Management Plan (GMP), to replace the park's current planning document which is more than 30 years old. The park is also engaged in the development or update of several GMP implementation plans.
You are invited to take an active role in helping shape the future of this national treasure.
