Draft Environmental Impact Statement on Nabesna Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C) the National Park Service (NPS) announces the availability of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) on Off-Road Vehicle Management in the Nabesna District of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. The DEIS evaluates the environmental impacts of a preferred alternative and three action alternatives for management of off-road vehicles in the Nabesna District. The purpose is to consider opportunities for appropriate and reasonable access to wilderness and backcountry recreational activities, which also accommodates subsistence and access to inholdings while protecting scenic quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and other park resource values. A no action alternative is also evaluated. This notice announces the public comment period, the locations of public meetings, and solicits comments on the DEIS. This DEIS also provides notice of a proposed technical correction to the wilderness eligibility assessment which was approved in the 1986 Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve General Management Plan. Public comment on the revised wilderness eligibility map for the Nabesna District is specifically requested.
