SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

16 U.S.C. 4601-9(c)(1) provides that, after notifying the House Committee on Natural Resources and the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, the Secretary of the Interior is authorized to make this boundary revision upon publication of notice in the Federal Register.

The proposed boundary revision would make a significant contribution to the purposes for which the national park was established by enabling the Service to efficiently manage and protect significant resources similar to that already protected within the present park boundary. This land includes much of the upper watershed for the Fish Bay drainage system which ultimately drains into national park waters. In addition, this land contains numerous historic sites related to the plantation era on St. John.
