AGENCY:

ACTION:

Notification of Boundary Revision.

SUMMARY:

Notice is hereby given that the boundary of Virgin Islands National Park is modified to include one tract 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 tract within the park's boundary will make significant contributions to the purposes for which the park was established. After the United States acquires the tracts, the National Park Service will manage them in accordance with applicable law.
