Pursuant to section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (16 U.S.C. 410ccc-4; 42 U.S.C. 4371; 40 CFR 1503) the National Park Service (NPS) announces the availability of the DPlans/DEIS.

These documents have been prepared in cooperation with a committee of the National Park System Advisory Board. The Board forwarded its recommendations to the Director of the National Park Service and the Secretary of the Interior.

This DPlans/DEIS presents a range of alternatives for guiding future management of the national seashore and balancing resource protection and public use. It also includes an analysis of the potential consequences of these actions. The major subject areas are natural and cultural resources management, wilderness management, long range interpretation, and commercial services.
