      ZION NATIONAL PARK - Zion National Park Superintendent Jock Whitworth
      announces the completion of the Backcountry Management Plan and the
      signing of the Finding of No Significant Impact by the National Park
      Service Intermountain Regional Director.

      The Backcountry Manage­ment Plan provides direction for the National
      Park Service to manage over 145,000 acres of backcountry within Zion.
      Most of these lands are within recommended wilderness and must be
      managed to protect wilderness characteristics and values. The plan
      offers an array of backcountry recreational opportunities while
      recognizing and protecting the cultural and natural resource values
      for which Zion was designated.

      To obtain a copy of the Backcountry Management Plan and FONSI, visit
      the National Park Planning Web site at http://parkplanning.nps.gov

      For more information, please contact Ray O'Neil, Plateau District
      Ranger, at (435) 772-7823 or ray_o'neil@....
