Decision Document for Fisher Plan/EA (Finding of No Significant Impact or FONSI)


This Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), as required by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), documents the decision of the National Park Service (NPS) to adopt the agency-preferred alternative presented in the Mount Rainier National Park and North Cascades National Park Service Complex Fisher Restoration Plan / Environmental Assessment (EA) and the NPS's determination that implementing this course of action will not result in significant impacts on the quality of the human environment. Mitigation measures designed to avoid or minimize impacts to park resources and a summary of agency coordination and public comment are also provided. An errata prepared as technical attachment to the EA (to provide clarification on language in the EA and a detailed response to public comments) is attached as Appendix A; and the Minimum Requirements Decision Guide, prepared in accordance with Director's Order 41: Wilderness Stewardship, is attached as Appendix B. A determination of non-impairment, as required by the NPS Organic Act of 1916, has been completed separately.

This FONSI and the environmental assessment (combined with Errata) constitute the record of the environmental impact analysis and decision-making process for the restoration of the fisher within Mount Rainier National Park (MORA) and North Cascades National Park Service Complex (NOCA) (which includes North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake National Recreation Area, and Lake Chelan National Recreation Area).
