Dry Bay Facility Improvements

The NPS proposed to construct, reconstruct, demolish and relocate certain visitor and administrative facilities at Dry Bay in Glacier Bay National Preserve. An environmental assessment (EA) has been prepared for the project. The EA included an opportunity for public comment and review. A final decision has been made, and a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was issued on June 9, 2004 (see below). The project was completed in late summer, 2004. The environmental assessment is divided into two .pdf files, one containing the entire text of the EA and the other containing the appendices. The FONSI is a separate file. To view, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0 or higher, available for download here at no cost.

Common Murre Egg

Common Murres (often seen on or near the Marble Islands) have a unique nesting behavior. They lay a single egg on bare ground or rock ledges. The egg is pear-shaped which prevents it from rolling off the ledge. Each egg has unique speckles and coloration that helps the parents identify their egg.
