Lassen Volcanic National Park has announced the final environmental impact of the announcement of Warner Valley's comprehensive site plan (FEIS) this week.
Is it pleasant to announce the release of this document, which is the long-term result of cooperation between park staff, researchers and the public? Superintendent Darlene Koontz said. I highly appreciate the introduction of the people and the development of the groups that have a deep commitment in this beautiful and historical perspective.
Park has developed Warner Valley's comprehensive site plan in response to the versatile management needs of the Warner Valley Area, including the Restoration Valley in an unusual Fen and Wetland Complex, and to protect and maintain archaeological and cultural sites such as the historic Drakesbad Hotel Ranch.
The plan also focuses on improving pedestrian paths and pathways and enhanced interpretative offers, as well as solving security problems that may arise from Warner Valley Road's lack of parking and walking. Said Coonema.
