Channel Islands National Park Fire Management Plan and EA
Channel Islands National Park » Channel Islands National Park Fire Management Plan and EA » Document List
Channel Islands National Park's current FMP was written in 2006 and last updated in 2013. It expired due to changes in NEPA and Categorical Exclusion (CE) use. The previous Fire Management Plan referenced Healthy Forest Initiative Categorical Exclusion HFI CE 3.4 G for fuels work in the park. In 2016, use of this CE was removed from the 9th circuit court states including CA, OR, WA, ID, and NV. Now, NPS units within the 9th circuit are required to produce an Environmental Assessment (EA) or Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for hazardous fuels reduction activities. Under the revised and updated FMP, the Park will continue to utilize prescribed fire in fire and fuels management, especially for burning vegetation management related debris piles.
