ACTION: Notice of availability; request for comments. AGENCY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce the availability of a Draft Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) and Environmental Assessment (EA) for the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge (NWR). The Draft CCP/EA, prepared under the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, and in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, describes how the Service proposes to manage the San Diego NWR for the next 15 years.

Box 2358, Chula Vista, CA 91912 In-Person Drop-off: You may drop off comments at the San Diego NWR Complex Office; please call 619–476– 9150, extension 103, for directions and access information. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Victoria Touchstone, Refuge Planner, at 619–476–9150, extension 103, or Jill Terp, Refuge Manager, at 619–468–9245, extension 226. Further information may also be found at http://www.fws.gov/ refuge/San_Diego/what_we_do/ planning.html. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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, requires the Service to develop a CCP for each national wildlife refuge. The purpose in developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year plan for achieving refuge purposes and contributing toward 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. PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background We initiated the CCP/EA for the San Diego NWR in May 2006. At that time and throughout the process, we requested, considered, and incorporated public scoping comments in numerous ways. Our public outreach included a Federal Register notice of intent published on May 24, 2006 (71 FR 29973), two public scoping meetings, three planning updates, and two public use workshops. The scoping comment period ended on July 15, 2006; however, additional input has been solicited from interested stakeholders throughout the planning process. Verbal comments were recorded at public meetings, and written comments have been received via letters, emails, and comment cards. Refuge History The San Diego NWR was established in 1996 under the authorities of the Fish and Wildlife Act of 1956, as amended (16 U.S.C. 742(a)–754); Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531–1544, 87 Stat. 884); and Refuge Recreation Act of 1962, as amended (16 U.S.C. 460k–460k–4). Land acquisition from willing sellers within both the approved 43,860-acre Refuge boundary for the OtaySweetwater Unit and the 8,220-acre Vernal Pools Stewardship Project boundary is intended to conserve large contiguous blocks of undisturbed native habitat. As of August 2013, the Refuge included approximately 11,530 acres, with 11,470 acres distributed among several noncontiguous land areas within the Otay-Sweetwater Unit, and an additional 60 acres of vernal pool habitat included within the Del Mar Mesa Vernal Pool Unit. Refuge Purposes The primary purposes of the San Diego NWR are to contribute to the recovery of endangered, threatened, and rare species; to support the native biodiversity of the southwestern San Diego Region by contributing to the development of a regional preserve under the San Diego Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP); to provide breeding, migration, and wintering habitat for migratory birds; and to provide opportunities for compatible wildlife-dependent E:\FR\FM\19JNN1.SGM 19JNN1
