The CCP will set wildlife, habitat, and public use priorities and guide management decisions on the refuge for the next 15 years. The open houses will give interested members of the public, tribes, agencies, neighbors, public interest groups, and local governments an opportunity to participate in this planning process from the very beginning. All aspects of the refuge will be addressed by the CCP, including important fish and wildlife habitats, public use and facilities, and current management activities.
