Public Comments Sought for 2014 Superintendent’s Compendium
Contact: Marshall Neeck, (707) 465-7302
Redwood National and State Parks (RNSP) is soliciting public comment for the Superintendent's Compendium. The compendium is a summary of park-specific rules that is reviewed annually and updated as necessary.
The regulations the National Park Service (NPS) enforces across all national parklands come from Title 36 Code of Federal Regulations (36 CFR). Title 36 contains the basic mechanism used by the National Park Service to preserve and protect the national and cultural resources, and to protect visitors and property within the park. It also grants superintendents discretionary authority to develop park-specific rules in response to the special needs of resource protection, park programs or plans, and/or the general public. Many Compendiums complement existing state and/or local laws and regulations currently in effect in the park. The Compendium does not—nor cannot—replace or repeal existing state or federal laws.
The 2014 Superintendent's Compendium will be available for public review for 30 days ending February 28, 2014.

A redwood cone is the size of an olive. Each cone contains 60 to 120 seeds. One tree may produce 10 million seeds but only a few will reach maturity. If a seed settles in just the right place it may grow into a tree that will live more than 2,000 years.
