Subject: Zion In National Wild and Scenic River System ?

[ AzTeC / SWA SASIG ] :

Zion National Park is evaluating whether any streams within park 
boundaries should be included in the National Wild and Scenic River 
System. Interdisciplinary experts will be looking at the natural, 
cultural and recreational values of the following rivers and their 
tributaries: North Fork Virgin River, East Fork Virgin River, La Verkin 
Creek, Coal Pits Wash, North Creek, Taylor Creek, and Camp Creek. The 
public is invited to provide comments relating to geology, fish, 
wildlife, vegetation, cultural, historic, recreational, or scenic 
resources for these river segments and their corridors in Zion National 
Park.  The Wild and Scenic Rivers issue is still open for comment until 
Feb 13.  (Other issues related to the General Management Plan were due 
by Jan 23).  Comments to Darla_Sidles@nps.gov, Darla Sidles, Zion 
National Park, (435) 772-0211.
