Lava Beds National Monument General Management Plan and EIS or EA
It is with great pleasure that we announce the availability of the Draft General Management Plan and Environmental Assessment for Lava Beds National Monument (GMP/EA) for public review and comment. When completed, the plan will guide our management of the monument with a 15-20 year vision for its operation and protection. However, before the GMP/EA can be completed, it is important that we receive comments on the draft. Please take the time to review the document and provide us with any comments that you may have.
The plan represents your involvement and input into the planning process. The preferred alternative addresses concepts that many of you proposed or supported, including more opportunities to learn about monument resources through new interpretive and educational opportunities, enhanced protection of resources through research and restoration efforts, and improved facilities at Petroglyph Point. Your input to this plan is important and will make it a better guide for the future of the monument.
The document is available for review electronically on this website. To download the document and comment online, please click on the "Open for Public Comment" link. Hard copies and compact discs (CDs) of the document can also be obtained by calling the NPS at (530)667-8113 (or 667-8101).
We also invite you to attend public meetings where you can meet with the planning team to ask questions, discuss, and provide public comments. These meetings will be held on October 5th in Klamath Falls, OR and October 6th in Tulelake, CA. Please review the meeting notices section of this website for more detailed information.
Our planning effort has benefited from your participation and involvement. We thank you for taking the time to make this the best plan possible for such a special place.
