This system will allow people to gain access to current plans and related documents that are available for review and open for comment. Public comments can be submitted through the PEPC system. The public will also be able to access schedules for particular projects as well as specific information about public meetings. While the PEPC system will become the primary vehicle to submit and review comments on planning efforts and projects, the park will continue to accept comments from the public as it always has, by mail, fax, and e-mail.
Documents Open for Public Review

An archive of completed projects as well as projects without documents open for comment may be found on the PEPC website.

Desert coyotes feed on delicacies such as crickets, quail, cactus fruits, rodents, and carrion. Weighing half as much as coyotes elsewhere, they have shorter, thinner, and paler fur which not only blends with the barren landscape, but also helps dissipate heat.
