Well now is your chance to get those ideas in front of the people who are creating a direction for management and use of the park for years to come!
Channel Islands National Park draft General Management Plan is currently open for comment and the public is encouraged to participate in its final stages. Over a decade in the making, the plan outlines three options for access and accommodations for each of the five islands that comprise the National Park, with Alternative 3 the preferred option.
Not everyone will have the time and resources to visit the islands themselves and the park service has taken that into consideration too. The draft plan includes additions to the mainland visitors center in Ventura as well as enhancements to online programs and web based activities like the underwater webcam and live broadcasts from above and below the ocean.
Something for everyone!
The only thing missing... is your VOICE. So take a moment to review the plan and if you have a passion for something not included or a concern about something that IS included, exercise your right and comment!
