Management plans define the objectives, methodologies, and/or designs on how management goals will be accomplished. Occurring on an as-needed basis, they are typically focused on specific management topics, goals, or issues. Depending on their focus, the plans can apply to all or part of a unit. Examples include management plans for natural or cultural resources, operations, interpretation, concessions, facility development, and roads and trails. Management plans are consistent with systemwide plans and policies and with the unit’s general plan.

Management plans act as a bridge between the desired conditions stated as goals and guidelines in the general plan and the measurable implementation actions. Unlike general plans, individual management plans are more dynamic, changing as necessary to serve management needs.
