The Future Of Goat Island Under Management Plan
(KVHT) – According to a signed decision by the National Park Service Acting Regional Director, there was a record finding of no significant impact for the Goat Island Management Plan and Environmental Assessment. Patricia Trap signed the decision which allows the NPS to implement the management plan as described in the selected action. The purpose of the management plan is to guide future decisions on the running and supervision of the 800-acre island within the boundary of the Missouri National Recreational River (MNRR). Goat Island was confirmed public land and assigned to the NPS for management in 2016. The Missouri National Recreational River Superintendent Rick Clark advised that the National Park Service will continue to work closely with its partners and the community as a whole in joint stewardship to ensure the island remains available to all visitors. Goat Island (also known as Jake’s Island) is located in the channel of the Missouri River near Vermillion, and within the congressionally authorized boundary of the MNRR, a unit of the National Park Service and a part of the Wild and Scenic Rivers System. It supports a variety of wildlife within its forest of cottonwood and Eastern red cedar.
