Devils Postpile National Monument General Management Plan
The National Park Service (NPS) is pleased to announce the completion of the Devils Postpile National Monument General Management Plan (GMP). The Pacific West Regional Director approved the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the GMP on January 26, 2015. The FONSI documents the decision of the NPS to adopt Alternative C: Connecting People to Nature and Heritage, the preferred alternative, and the determination that no significant impacts on the quality of the human environment nor impairment of park values are associated with that decision.
The actions encompassed by the selected alternative are substantially the same as identified and analyzed in Alternative C: Connecting People to Nature and Heritage, in the EA for the Draft General Management Plan (DGMP). Minor modifications based on information and comments submitted during public review of the DGMP are incorporated in the FONSI and Errata. The final GMP is comprised of all three of these documents.
The primary focus of the approved GMP is to emphasize key features with national significance for resource protection and connect visitors with nature and heritage, including traditional park experiences in a natural setting.
The FONSI, Draft GMP, and Errata are available on this site.
All of the NPS efforts were enlightened and enhanced by the comments and insights of the public at large and key stakeholder organizations. This document will provide thoughtful guidance to park leadership as they preserve and protect the resources unimpaired and provide for visitor enjoyment of Devils Postpile National Monument into the future.
