SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Service has initiated the CCP for the Rainwater Basin WMD with headquarters in Kearney, Nebraska. Each unit of the National Wildlife Refuge System, including this WMD, has specific purposes for which it was established and for which legislation was enacted. Those purposes are used to develop and prioritize management goals and objectives within the National Wildlife Refuge System mission, and to guide which public uses will occur on the WMD. The planning process is a way for the Service and the public to evaluate management goals and objectives for the best possible conservation efforts of this important wildlife habitat, while providing for wildlife-dependent recreation opportunities that are compatible with each WMD’s establishing purposes and the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System. Rainwater Basin WMD was established in 1963 when the Service began acquiring critical migratory waterfowl habitat in south-central and southeastern Nebraska with Duck Stamp dollars. Today, the Rainwater Basin WMD manages 61 individual tracts of land within the geographic area called the Rainwater Basin. This WMD encompasses a complex of wetlands scattered throughout a 17-county area. The wetlands are shallow basins that provide resting and feeding areas for millions of birds during spring and fall migration. Historically, bison and wildfire kept the wetlands open, with annual plants growing during dry summer months and droughts. With the bison gone and wildfires controlled, management has to be accomplished to keep these wetlands in a condition favored by ducks, geese, and other water birds. Current public use opportunities at this WMD include hunting, wildlife observation and photography. The Service will conduct a CCP process that will provide an opportunity for Tribal, State, and local governments; agencies; organizations; and the public to participate in issue scoping and public comment. The Service is requesting input for issues, concerns, ideas, and suggestions for the future management of the Rainwater Basin WMD in south-central Nebraska. Anyone interested in providing input is invited to respond to the following three questions. (1) What makes the Rainwater Basin WMD special or unique for you? (2) What problems or issues do you want to see addressed in the CCP? PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1451 (3) What improvements would you recommend for the Rainwater Basin WMD? The Service has provided the above questions for your optional use; you are not required to provide information to the Service. The Planning Team developed these questions to facilitate finding out more information about individual issues and ideas concerning the Rainwater Basin WMD. Comments received by the Planning Team will be used as part of the planning process; individual comments will not be referenced in our reports or directly responded to. An opportunity will be given to the public to provide input at open houses to scope issues and concerns (schedules can be obtained from the Planning Team Leaders at the above addresses).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Service has initiated the CCP for the 
Rainwater Basin WMD with headquarters in Kearney, Nebraska.
    Each unit of the National Wildlife Refuge System, including this 
WMD, has specific purposes for which it was established and for which 
legislation was enacted. Those purposes are used to develop and 
prioritize management goals and objectives within the National Wildlife 
Refuge System mission, and to guide which public uses will occur on the 
WMD. The planning process is a way for the Service and the public to 
evaluate management goals and objectives for the best possible 
conservation efforts of this important wildlife habitat, while 
providing for wildlife-dependent recreation opportunities that are 
compatible with each WMD's establishing purposes and the mission of the 
National Wildlife Refuge System.
    Rainwater Basin WMD was established in 1963 when the Service began 
acquiring critical migratory waterfowl habitat in south-central and 
southeastern Nebraska with Duck Stamp dollars. Today, the Rainwater 
Basin WMD manages 61 individual tracts of land within the geographic 
area called the Rainwater Basin. This WMD encompasses a complex of

    The Service will conduct a CCP process that will provide an 
opportunity for Tribal, State, and local governments; agencies;

Planning Team developed these questions to facilitate finding out more 
information about individual issues and ideas concerning the Rainwater 
Basin WMD. Comments received by the Planning Team will be used as part 
of the planning process; individual comments will not be referenced in 
our reports or directly responded to.
    An opportunity will be given to the public to provide input at open 
houses to scope issues and concerns (schedules can be obtained from the 
Planning Team Leaders at the above addresses). Comments may also be
