Mount Rushmore National Memorial Independence Day Holiday Fireworks Event Environmental Assessment

This environmental assessment (EA) evaluated the potential impacts of the State's proposed Independence Day event with fireworks at the Memorial.

Similar events could be permitted in future years if conditions remain the same and impacts are as described in the document.
