Reading Room: Freedom of Information Act Responses - FY 2011

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) gives you the right to access any Point Reyes National Seashore, National Park Service (NPS), or Department of the Interior (DOI) records unless the information in those records is protected by one or more of nine exemptions (reasons an agency may withhold records from a requester) and there is a sound legal basis to withhold them.

Many of the FOIA response documents include redactions related to one or more of the nine exemptions under FOIA. In these cases, the FOIA exemption is noted and is explained in the associated transmittal letter. Additional information, including certain personal information, (e.g. personal addresses, phone numbers, and or personal electronic email addresses) has been redacted to maintain the privacy rights of these individuals.

On this page you will find materials provided to members of the public and media who have requested them from Point Reyes National Seashore in Fiscal Year 2011 under the FOIA, as well as the final letter from the NPS to the requester.
