Draft Non-Native Deer Management Plan & Environmental Impact Statement December 2004

This Non-Native Deer Management Plan Draft Environmental Impact Statement analyzes a preferred alternative, no action, and four additional alternatives for future management of Axis deer (Axis axis) and Fallow deer (Dama dama) in Point Reyes National Seashore and Golden Gate National Recreation Area lands administered by PRNS. As lead agency for the plan, the National Park Service developed the alternatives to address problems and management concerns relating to non-native deer in the Seashore.
