The Environmental Assessment for the Jenny Lake Renewal Plan has been published now and is open to public review for the next 30 days. Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says the renewal effort is intended to provide for improved visitor experiences in the Jenny Lake area while not only being safe and environmentally sensitive, but providing educational opportunities as well. She points out that this is the single busiest location in the park for visitation, and it has been loved to death. Skaggs says, “ It has several problem areas: some of those related to our water and wastewater system, some of it related to getting people to their destinations [including] basic way-finding, education information and interpretive information, as well as trails that have been eroded and need rehabilitation.” Skaggs says once the public comment period on the EA concludes March 15th, public input will be reviewed in order to incorporate those concerns into the final plan. A preferred alternative will be crafted to address the developed area and also the back country. The plan and provisions for online comment may be found at parkplanning.nps.gov/jennylake.
