Preserve (NFSLRAP) and its resources are managed. Resource management
is physically done on the resources for which the preserve has direct management responsibility, and

Education and Outreach
Current Education and Outreach programs for NFSLRAP
focus on creating stewards who educate and engage others
as well as promote responsible natural resource use.
Public use management focuses on providing public recreational opportunities which are compatible
with resource management objectives.

management is a means through which any number of partners
may become involved in addressing an issue.
