Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.
Notice of intent; request for comments; correction.
On October 22, 2013, we, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), published a notice of intent to prepare a comprehensive conservation plan (CCP) and associated National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documents for Cat Island National Wildlife Refuge (NWR). We provided this notice in compliance with our CCP policy to advise other Federal and State agencies, Native American Tribes, and the public of our intentions, and to obtain suggestions and information on the scope of issues to consider in the planning process. However, we made an error in the end date we gave for public comments. This notice corrects that date error.
To ensure consideration, we must receive your written comments by December 21, 2013.
You may send comments, questions, and requests for information to: Robert Strader, Project Leader, USFWS, Lower Mississippi River Refuge Complex, P.O. Box 217, Sibley, MS, 39165.
