Environmental Assessments
Fisher Restoration Plan Environmental Assessment
On May 19, 2015, the Regional Director of the Pacific West Region of the National Park Service approved a proposal from North Cascades National Park Service Complex and Mount Rainier National Park to colloborate with the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife to restore the fisher (Pekania pennanti) to these units of the national park system. This proposal was evaluated and assessed through the completion of the Fisher Restoration Plan/Environmental Assessment (Plan/EA) that was released for public review in September 2014. To see the full plan and provide comments go to www.parkplanning.nps.gov/RestoreFisher. Fisher reintroductions at North Cascades National Park Service Complex will not occur until all planned reintroductions in the Southwestern Cascades are completed, but could occur as early as fall 2017. More information on the fisher, this planing effort, and recent decision is available via the plan process, meeting notices, links, and documents section of the
project website.
