General Management Plan Amendment: Draft Environmental Impact Statement

From August 8, 2019, until September 23, 2019, the National Park Service (NPS) sought public review and comment on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a General Management Plan Amendment (GMP Amendment) addressing all lands currently (as of 2019) under agricultural lease/permits within Point Reyes National Seashore and the north district of Golden Gate National Recreation Area in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act and the public involvement requirement of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The 45-day public review and comment period was open until September 23, 2019. The NPS encouraged the public to review and comment on the Draft EIS for the GMP Amendment. The NPS hosted two public meetings during this time, identical in format and intended to share information (3.3 MB PDF) and gather comments. The meetings were scheduled for late August at the following locations:

Tuesday, August 27, 2019
5-7 pm
West Marin School Gym
Point Reyes Station, CA

Wednesday, August 28, 2019
5-7 pm
Bay Model Visitor Center
Sausalito, CA

Comments could also be submitted online at, at one of the public meetings, or by mailing or hand delivering comments to:

GMP Amendment c/o Superintendent
Point Reyes National Seashore
1 Bear Valley Road
Point Reyes Station, CA 94956
