The Fallen Timbers Battlefield and Fort Miamis National Historic Site is an affiliated area of the national park system, managed by the Metropolitan Park District of the Toledo Area. The park consists of three units, the Fallen Timbers Battlefield, the Fallen Timbers State Monument, and Fort Miamis. The park commemorates an important period in the development of the United States and the opening of the northwest frontier. It represents the culminating event that demonstrated the tenacity of the American people in their quest for western expansion and the struggle for dominance in the Old Northwest Territory.
The purpose of the general management plan is to set forth the basic management philosophy for the park and to provide strategies for addressing issues and achieving identified management objectives. The GMP/EIS describes and analyzes the environmental impacts of the proposed action and two other action alternatives for the future management direction of the park. A no action alternative is also evaluated.
