Channel Islands Back Country and Wilderness Management Civic Engagement

The National Park Service is initiating development of a backcountry and wilderness management plan to address various management issues within proposed wilderness, proposed potential wilderness, and backcountry areas of the park. The plan will help to identify concepts and provide a decision-making framework for managing visitor use while protecting wilderness character and natural and cultural resources. The concepts identified as part of this planning effort will be consistent with the National Park Service's mission and the park's enabling legislation for administering visitor use on a low-intensity, limited-entry basis. The National Park Service invites you to collaborate in this process by helping to identify key issues, opportunities and management strategies.
