SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 1997, Congress mandated that the Service
prepare a comprehensive conservation plan for each refuge within the
National Wildlife Refuge System. Comprehensive conservation plans guide
management decisions over the course of 15 years. They identify refuge
goals and objectives as well as strategies for achieving those goals
and objectives. Plans will be reviewed and updated at least every 15
years. Public input is the foundation of the planning process, and
there were many opportunities for public involvement as plans were
developed for Shiawassee, Wyandotte, and Rydell National Wildlife
Refuges. The plans provide other agencies and the public with a clear
understanding of the desired conditions of each Refuge and how the
Service will implement management strategies.
