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.
Did You Know?
Lungwort lichens get their name because their appearance is similar to lung tissue. Some lungworts are able to convert atmospheric nitrogen to forms that other lichens and plants can use. The presence of lungwort is an indicator of a rich, unpolluted forest habitat.
