Dear Friends,

On behalf of the interagency planning team, we are pleased to share this draft Wilderness Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the management of eight wilderness units within and adjacent to Lake Mead National Recreation Area, of which three have portions which are located on lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

The interagency planning team has developed a set of three management alternatives that describe how each wilderness area will be managed for its resources, visitor experience and operations. Alternative B is the NPS and BLM preferred alternative, focusing on providing opportunities for access into the areas and guidance for climbing, while still protecting the character of the wilderness areas. The comments and suggestions that many of you have provided earlier were considered when developing the preferred alternative presented in this plan.

Please look at this draft and provide us your comments by March 23, 2014. You can submit your comments by any one of the following ways:
