Wilderness Stewardship Plan
The Wilderness Stewardship Plan and Final Environmental Impact Statement (WSP/DEIS) for Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks (SEKI) is now available. The 30-day no action period will commence with the publication of the Notice of Availability in the Federal Register on April 3, 2015.
The NPS will use the management framework established by the Wilderness Stewardship Plan to preserve wilderness character, provide opportunities for and encourage public use and enjoyment of the wilderness, and improve conditions in areas where there may be unacceptable levels of impacts on wilderness character.
If you are interested in reading the final plan, please view it on this website under "Document List." There will be limited printed versions of the document available, and CD copies will be available. If you previously requested a printed or CD copy, it will be mailed to you the week of April 6. To obtain a copy of the document, please contact Nancy Hendricks, environmental protection specialist, at (559) 565-3102.
Printed copies will be available at area libraries in Tulare, Fresno, Kern, and Inyo counties, and at the SEKI visitor centers at Ash Mountain, Lodgepole, and Grant Grove.
