SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In recent years, the Moose-Wilson corridor and surrounding areas in Grand Teton National Park have experienced changes in ecological conditions, development patterns, and use by visitors and local residents. As a result, the National Park Service is beginning a comprehensive planning and environmental impact statement process to determine how best to protect park resources and values while providing appropriate opportunities for visitor use, experience, and enjoyment of the corridor. The plan will: (1) Evaluate the importance and purpose of the Moose-Wilson corridor as a visitor destination within the park; (2) distinguish the corridor's fundamental and other important resources and values; (3) clearly define the necessary conditions for park visitors to understand, experience, and appreciate these resources and values; (4) identify the desired conditions linked to these resources and values; and (5) establish indicators and standards for maintaining these desired conditions.
