Vegetation Management Plan and associated Environmental Assessment

Subscribe RSS Icon | What is RSS
Date: December 17, 2012

The park is in the process of developing a Vegetation Management Plan and associated Environmental Assessment.The purpose of the proposed plan is to modify and/or establish the vegetation patterns in the park to represent the look and feel of the 1862 battlefield landscape. The plan would promote active vegetation restoration and support protection and preservation of cultural resources. The proposed project is being considered because the park's General Management Plan, completed in 2006, set the goals for landscape management at the park. We invite you to participate, through consultation with the National Park Service, in the analysis of potential environmental impacts on draft alternatives through our Planning, Environment and Public Comment website located athttp://parkplanning.nps.gov/ projectHome.cfm?projectID= 42064. This document is open for public comment through January 14, 2013
