Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument General Management Plan

Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument » Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument General Management Plan » Document List

The National Park Service is beginning a comprehensive planning effort for Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument. The result will be a new General Management Plan (GMP) that will guide park management for the next 20 years or longer. All national park units are required to have an approved general management plan. The National Park Service will work with its partners, the public, and its stakeholders to develop the plan and to comply with legal and policy requirements.

The general management plan for Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument will provide a framework to guide decisions for long-range park management. The plan will also define the desired resource conditions and visitor experiences that should be achieved and maintained based on the park's purpose and significance and as described in the park's authorizing legislation and foundation document. This plan will set the direction for subsequent and more focused planning efforts, as well.

This is your opportunity to help create a vision for the future of Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument. We are asking for your help and ideas as we develop the general management plan and seek your feedback on the early concepts and ideas for the general management plan that are outlined in this newsletter.

Thank you for being involved in this process!
