Management OLD

Management of our national parks is guided by laws, policies, plans and regulations. Below you will find the principal laws, executive orders, regulations and studies that help direct management of the Dry Tortugas.


Superintendent's annual narrative reports.

The superintendent’s annual narrative reports are a critical element in preserving the history of each unit in the National Park System and a vital tool for current and future park managers. These narratives are a succinct but analytical account of the park’s priorities and programs, as well as its major initiatives, activities, and accomplishments during the previous fiscal year.

Superintendents use these narratives as an opportunity to reflect on the most important events, milestones, and accomplishments during the previous fiscal year and note any major operational changes. In addition, the superintendent may highlight and analyze the key issues related to park activities and programs and provide a candid assessment of challenges facing the park. The annual reports for the past few years for the Dry Tortugas National Park has been merged with Everglades as many of their management and science operations are combined.

Note - this reporting process has been discontinued. The 2010 report is the last available report of this type.
