Continuation of Visitor Services, 8625-8626 [05-3329]

Download as PDF 8625 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 34 / Tuesday, February 22, 2005 / Notices Cape Cod, the enabling legislation of Cape Cod National Seashore in 1961 allowed for continued hunting activity within the boundaries of the Seashore. Animal rights groups have argued that environmental and social conditions in and around the Seashore have changed, and that hunting should be discontinued. Public meetings about this issue have been contentious, with the hunting community voicing strong opposition to changes in current hunting regulations within the Seashore. Given the polarity of the current debate, questions remain: Do area residents and visitors object to hunting in the Seashore, are they neutral about the issue, or do they consider it an appropriate and/or desirable use of the area? To what extent do residents and visitors feel threatened by hunting activities? How often do conflicts occur between hunters and non-hunters during the fall and winter hunting seasons? And what is the extent of hunting activity on the Seashore? This study is designed to better understand the scope of hunting activities at the Seashore, the degree of conflict that occurs over the practice, and how people feel about hunting at the Seashore. Automated data collection: At the present time, there is no automated way to gather this information because it includes directly contacting hunters, visitors to Cape Cod National Seashore, and residents in the six surrounding townships. Description of respondents: Visitors to Cape Cod National Seashore and residents of the following townships on Cape Cod: Provincetown, Truro, Wellfleet, Eastham, Orleans, and Chatham. Estimated average number of respondents: 2,900. Estimated average number of responses: 2,900. Estimated average burden hours per response: 20 minutes. Frequency of Response: 1 time per respondent. Estimated annual reporting burden: 929 hours. Dated: November 17, 2004. Leonard E. Stowe, Acting, National Park Service Information Collection Clearance Officer.
