Description of Need: The National Park Service (NPS) is requesting renewal of an existing information collection that received emergency clearance on May 21, 2009.

The survey gathers information that will be used in the planning and rulemaking processes for CAHA’s OffRoad Vehicle (ORV) Management Plan/ Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and ORV regulation. The continuation of the visitor survey with the current renewal request will allow the NPS to have a seasonally representative sample of CAHA visitors. By having seasonal representation, the NPS will be better able to have a complete picture of visitors and visitor preferences for park management and for the final economic analysis. Automated data collection: No automated data collection will be used. Information will be collected via on-site surveys. Description of respondents: Visitors to Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
