FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robert Lambrecht, Planning Team Leader, phone (907) 656–1231. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Introduction With this notice, we initiate our process for developing a CCP for the Koyukuk and Nowitna and the Northern Unit (Kaiyuh Flats) of Innoko National Wildlife Refuges, Alaska. We furnish this notice in compliance with our policy to (1) advise other Federal and State agencies, Tribes, and the public of our intention to conduct detailed planning on this refuge and (2) obtain PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57343 suggestions and information on the scope of issues to be considered in the environmental document and during the development of the CCP. The CCP Process The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (94 Stat. 2371) and the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997 (16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee), which amended the National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966; require us to develop a CCP for each national wildlife refuge in Alaska. The purpose of developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year plan for achieving refuge purposes and contributing to the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System, consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and our policies. In addition to outlining broad management direction on conserving wildlife and their habitats, CCPs identify wildlifedependent recreational opportunities available to the public, including opportunities for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation and photography, and environmental education and interpretation. We will review and update the CCP at least every 15 years in accordance with the Refuge Improvement Act and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.). Each unit of the National Wildlife Refuge System was established for specific purposes. We use these purposes as the bases to develop and prioritize management goals and objectives within the National Wildlife Refuge System mission, and to guide which public uses will occur on these Refuges. The planning process is a way for us and the public to evaluate management goals and objectives for the best possible conservation approach to this important wildlife habitat, while providing for wildlife-dependent recreation opportunities that are compatible with the Refuges’ establishing purposes and the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System. We will conduct a comprehensive conservation planning process that will provide opportunity for Tribal, State, and local government agencies; organizations; and the public to participate in issue scoping and public comment. We request input in the form of issues, concerns, ideas, and suggestions for the future management of the Koyukuk and Nowitna and the Northern Unit (Kaiyuh Flats) of Innoko National Wildlife Refuges. We will conduct the environmental review of this project through an E:\FR\FM\09OCN1.SGM 09OCN1
