Death Valley National Park has finalized the Saline Valley Warm Springs Management Plan. The plan will go into effect when the Record of Decision is signed, on or after June 10. The plan incorporates feedback from several rounds of public comments periods.
If you're not familiar with Saline Valley Warm Springs, please be aware that the access roads are long and very rough. ... See MoreSee Less
The last time I went it did not look like an area under the management of the NPS...more like a remote piece of private land. I appreciate the NPS bringing the area up to the standards of the other areas in the park and other parks...etc
I have been there many times even in July and August. Anyway. Several issues with this plan.
1. The issue of fighter jets doing near mach speed flybys at illegal altitudes. Altitudes far lower than allowed by mach speed corridor.
2. There needs to be a better maintenance plan. Where is the agreement that lizard lee is the only caretaker? It should be on a limited time rotating volunteer basis.
3. Issue of the wild burros not being wild and more like lizard lees pets because he and others feed them.
Well done on this plan!
Thanks - sounds like there will finally be some management there. I went through the Valley (and springs) in 1972 and 2008. What a change! By 2008, the Lower springs had become a weird city-like enclave. Exotic plants, lawn, doves, etc. while dispersed camping sites had become little garbage dumps. Please bring it back to its natural state - but allow use of hot springs by the public.
Saline Valley is beautiful... 84 miles of very rough dirt road... a good 5 hour drive with no services and you won’t see any other car...
What is the “vehicle support facility”?
Probably as good a result as could be expected from federal bureaucrats.
Another prime example of government control.
Get rid of the squatters and give it back to the people. The trust fund babies have lived there long enough. Pack out the garbage, trailers and turn it back to it's natural state.
why remove plants, let them stay since they have been there for long time, unless plants are weed
We may not have a super bloom this year, but we will definitely have a #SuperMoon!😂 Tonight, the Super Snow Moon will rise @ 5:54 pm. It will appear as the "biggest" & "brightest" moon of the year- it is a great time to take a look at the moon's features!#fullmoon #traveltuesday
