SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pipestone National Monument offers an opportunity to explore American Indian culture and the natural resources of the tallgrass prairie. Established by Congress in 1937 to protect the historic pipestone quarries, the site is considered sacred by many American Indians. Spanning centuries of use, American Indians continue to quarry PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9773 pipestone, which they carve into sacred pipes. The GMP/EIS analyzes the impacts of a no-action and three action alternatives. The no-action alternative describes the existing conditions and trends of park management and serves as a basis for comparison in evaluating the other alternatives. The focus of alternative one is the removal of development from the heart of the national monument. Alternative two focuses on updating the existing facilities and increasing the interpretive emphasis on quarrying. Alternative three was developed to meld the most advantageous features of the other two action alternatives by removing some park operations from the national monument and updating existing facilities.
