The National Park Service's (NPS) National Capital Region (NCR) is proposing to prepare a Wetland Restoration Action Plan (WRAP) for four parks within the NCR: Catoctin Mountain Park; Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park; Harpers Ferry National Historical Park; and Monocacy National Battlefield.

An Environmental Assessment is being prepared to evaluate potential impacts of the proposed project on the natural resources, cultural resources, and visitor experience at the four NCR parks, in accordance with National Environmental Policy Act.

The purpose of the WRAP is to provide a comprehensive approach to restoring, enhancing, and/or protecting wetlands, waterways, and stream habitats at the four NCR parks. The approach would prioritize specific areas within the parks and provide specific restoration actions for these
areas to deal with degraded natural resource conditions or deficiencies.
