General Management Plan

The National Park Service (NPS) has just begun a multi-year planning effort examining the condition of the park and discussing what it should look like in the future. We invite you to join us as we develop a blueprint for the park’s future. This blueprint, called a General Management Plan, will guide the park’s resource protection and facility development efforts and their goals for the visitor’s experience over the next 20 to 25 years.

The first step is to identify the resource management, facility development, interpretation and visitor experience issues that the public feels are important to discuss during this planning effort. Join us in a series of open houses and meetings at the park to discuss your thoughts and concerns, or send them electronically or by mail.
