NEPA Documents

The National Environmental Policy Act, among other actions, sets out procedural requirements for all federal government agencies to prepare environmental assessments (EAs) and environmental impact statements (EISs). EAs and EISs contain statements of the environmental effects of proposed federal agency actions.

Glacier Bay will publish NEPA documents as they are finalized.
