Notification of Boundary Revision.


Notice is hereby given that the boundary of Big Thicket National Preserve is modified to include two tracts of land adjacent to the park. This revision is made to include privately owned property that the landowners wish to donate to the United States. The National Park Service has determined that these boundary revisions will make significant contributions to the purpose for which the park was created and will allow the National Park Service complete managerial and law enforcement jurisdiction over these tracts once acquired.
