Point Reyes National Seashore and the north district of Golden Gate National Recreation Area have just released a concepts newsletter updating the public on the general management planning process. An upcoming workshop has been set for public input on Point Reyes National Seashore’s General Management Plan update (GMP) and Environmental Impact Statement. This planning process will be conducted over the next several years and a final GMP will be developed out of this process.
