Last winter, the National Park Service completed formal public scoping for the ongoing Cultural Resources Management Plan (CRMP). The public had the opportunity to review preliminary alternative concepts click here and to provide their thoughts and feedback. The team is now working to finalize a range of alternatives and the draft document is scheduled to be available this fall or winter. Public involvement is a critical part of this planning process, and we look forward to working with you and appreciate your continued interest in the future of cultural resources in Isle Royale National Park. Newsletters, opportunities to participate and other information related to the CRMP can be found by clicking here.
