National Park Service, Department of the Interior.


Notification of boundary revision.


Notice is hereby given that the boundary of Big Thicket National Preserve is modified to include seven 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 inclusion of the seven tracts within the preserve's boundary will make significant contributions to the purposes for which the preserve was established. After the United States acquires the tracts, the National Park Service will manage them in accordance with applicable law.
