Anthony C. Beilenson Visitor Center at King Gillette Ranch Environmental Assessment

The vision to establish a full-service, interagency visitor center for the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA) has been discussed for many years, and is now within our grasp. The National Park Service at SMMNRA has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed construction and operation of the Anthony C. Beilenson Visitor Center at King Gillette Ranch.

We are seeking your comments on the project and the analysis presented in this document. The EA is available now for a 30-day public review and comment period. This comment period is open through midnight on March 15, 2010. You can view or download the EA by clicking on the following links.
