Planning and Compliance
The Southeast Utah Group (SEUG) parks (Arches, Canyonlands, Hovenweep, and Natural Bridges) are beginning a process to develop a soundscape management plan and associated environmental assessment. The general purposes of this plan are to (1) protect the acoustic experience of park visitors and ensure that natural sounds continue to play an important role in the enjoyment of park resources and values, (2) protect natural soundscapes and acoustic conditions for wildlife, ensuring healthy and dynamic ecosystems, and (3) provide an approach to managing the natural soundscape that is consistent with National Park Service policy.
