Foundation Document for Dry Tortugas National Park

Dear Friends, Neighbors and Partners:

I am pleased to announce that the National Park Service (NPS) has completed a Foundation Document for Dry Tortugas National Park.

The Foundation Document reaffirms the park's core purpose and significance and the most important resources and values as identified in the park's General Management Plan (GMP) completed in 2001. These components are rooted in the park's legislated purpose and typically do not change over time. The document also takes a fresh look at the interpretive themes that tell the park's important stories. Finally, the document identifies future planning needs as well as the critical issues, challenges, and opportunities that face Dry Tortugas National Park in the future.

The Foundation Document is not a decision-making document and does not include actions or management strategies like the GMP. Instead, it describes a shared understanding of what is most important about the park for future management and planning decisions facing the NPS. The Foundation Document can be accessed at the Documents List on the left side of this page.

Thank you for your interest in Dry Tortugas National Park.

Pedro M. Ramos
