Telephone: (907) 644–3611. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Park Service (NPS) is preparing a revised draft backcountry management plan and accompanying EIS that amends the 1986 General Management Plan for Denali National Park and Preserve. The purpose of the plan and EIS is to formulate a comprehensive plan for the backcountry, including designated wilderness, of Denali National Park and Preserve that will provide management direction over the next 15–20 years. The backcountry of Denali National Park and Preserve is defined to include the entire park except for those areas designated specifically for development in the entrance area and along the road corridor. Many issues to be addressed in the backcountry management plan, however, would affect the entire park, including developed areas. The NPS has initiated this management plan and EIS to address the rapidly growing level and diversity of uses, resource management needs, and the anticipated demand for future uses not foreseen or addressed in the 1986 General Management Plan. The NPS developed a range of alternatives based on planning objectives, park resources, and public input. Each alternative represents a distinct vision for the park’s backcountry. These alternatives describe actions related to management area designation, recreational activities, and administrative activities. Four alternatives in addition to a no-action alternative were developed. The draft backcountry management plan was distributed for public review in February 2003, with the public comment period ending on May 30, 2003. The National Park Service received 9,370 comments on the draft plan. After careful consideration, the National Park Service concluded that alternatives presented in the draft would require significant modification to respond to the range of interests expressed in public comment. To give the public an opportunity to respond to E:\FR\FM\26APN1.SGM 26APN1
