Canaveral National Seashore Final General Management Plan is Released

Canaveral National Seashore Superintendent Myrna Palfrey has announced the release of the Final General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement for Canaveral National Seashore. This plan represents involvement from our park communities, members of the public, state agencies of Florida, other agencies and partners, and the National Park Service.

The Final General Management Plan provides comprehensive guidance for perpetuating natural systems, preserving cultural resources, and providing opportunities for quality visitor experiences at Canaveral National Seashore. Its purpose is to decide how the National Park Service can best fulfill the national seashore's purpose, maintain its significance, and protect is resources unimpaired for the enjoyment of present and future generations.

Under the preferred alternative, the national seashore would be managed to preserve and enhance the natural and historic landscape features associated with the national seashore's eastern Florida coastal barrier island system. Emphasis would be placed on retaining the national seashore's relatively undeveloped character, providing uncrowded experiences, and enhancing educational opportunities and programs for visitors.

A copy of the final general management plan can be found at:
