This scoping newsletter has been created to provide a brief summary of the background information that our NPS planning team has compiled in advance of the preparation of a White-tailed Deer and Vegetation Management Plan for Fire Island National Seashore. The newsletter introduces some background information and the purpose and need for such a plan, and explains the process that the NPS follows to develop such a plan and its associated Environmental Impact Statement. The newsletter also serves as an invitation to the public for the submission of additional information, comments or opinions that will be useful in the preparation of this plan. No public meetings have been planned for the public scoping portion of this process. Comments may be submitted electronically at this site, (through the specified closing date) or by mail to the address below.
Your feedback is valuable. Thank you for your participation!
