Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge released its preferred alternative for its comprehensive management plan. That’s bureaucratic gobbledy-gook that essentially means they’ve put in print how they want to manage the refuge in the future. Most people will see the plan as more restrictive than what’s currently allowed at the refuge, especially pertaining to recreation.

You will have to wade through a lot of stuff to understand it all, but scroll down to the map and it gives a good overview of how it will affect Lake Lowell, which is the most heavily used portion of the refuge. You can read the plan here. People have until May 15 to comment on the proposed changes.
