The above-cited Act authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to exchange certain privately owned lands adjacent to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area for federally owned lands within the recreation area boundary. Upon completion of this exchange, the boundaries of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area will be revised to add the parcel now adjacent to the recreation area and to exclude the parcel now inside the recreation area. Land added to the recreation area shall be administered as part of the park in accordance with the laws and regulations applicable thereto. The lands to be exchanged are generally described as follows:

The value of the properties exchanged shall be determined by a current fair market value appraisal.

If the privately owned property is higher in value than the federally owned property, no cash payment to equalize values shall be made.
