Notice of Designation of Potential Wilderness as Wilderness, 
Congaree National Park, South Carolina

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of Designation.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Congaree Swamp National Monument Expansion and Wilderness 
Act of 1988 (Pub. L. 100-524, October 24, 1988) designated 
approximately 15,010 acres of Congaree Swamp National Monument, now 
Congaree National Park, as wilderness, and approximately 6,840 acres as 
potential wilderness additions. Section 2(b) of Public Law 100-524 
authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to convert any designated 
potential wilderness at Congaree National Park to designated wilderness 
upon publication in the Federal Register of a notice that any non-
Federal interests in land have been acquired and all uses thereon 
prohibited by the Wilderness Act of 1964 (Pub. L. 88-577) have ceased.
    Accordingly, this notice hereby converts approximately 6,690 acres 
of designated potential wilderness at Congaree National Park to 
designated wilderness. The converted acreage comprises all but about 60 
acres of designated potential wilderness in the park that have been 
acquired to date by the United States. The approximately 90 acres of 
private land still remaining within the park's designated potential 
wilderness are not affected by this Notice. These private lands, if 
acquired by the United States, may be converted to designated 
wilderness at a later date. A map showing the lands hereby converted to 
designated wilderness is on file at the administrative office of 
Congaree National Park.
    All interests in the lands converted to designated wilderness via 
this Notice have been acquired by the United States, and there are no 
current, or proposed, uses of the 6,690 acres that are incompatible 
with wilderness designation. These 6,690 acres shall be added to the 
15,010 acres of designated wilderness within the Congaree National Park 
Wilderness and managed in accordance with the Wilderness Act of 1964.

    Dated: December 20, 2013.
