The Department invites public comment on the draft amendment to the Jay Mountain Wilderness UMP.  The intent and purpose of this amendment is to: (1) recognize that the 2013 Constitutional amendment implicitly repeals the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan guidelines for Wilderness that would otherwise prohibit NYCO's mineral sampling operations; (2) make the UMP consistent with the 2013 Constitutional amendment; and (3) note that detailed terms and conditions governing NYCO's mineral sampling operations will be set forth in a Temporary Revocable Permit issued by the Department. 

Comments will be accepted through May 30, 2014 and may be submitted to Peter J. Frank, NYS DEC, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-4254

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.
