U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Invites Public Comment at ONWR

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is seeking comments from the public on a draft Compatibility Determination for Wildlife Observation and Photography at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. Written comments will be accepted through April 1, 2016.

A Compatibility Determination is a written determination signed and dated by the Refuge Manager and Regional Refuge Chief, signifying whether a proposed or existing use of a national wildlife refuge is, or is not, a compatible use. Compatible uses do not materially interfere with or detract from fulfillment of the National Wildlife Refuge System mission or the purposes of the national wildlife refuge. Compatibility determinations for each “use” of a national wildlife refuge are reevaluated every 10-15 years.
