In a petition for review of the National Park Service's decision to permit the continued use of motorized rafts and support equipment in Grand Canyon National Park, the petition is denied where: 1) certain Park Service policies challenged by plaintiffs did not prescribe substantive rules, nor were they promulgated in conformance with the procedures of the Administrative Procedure Act; and 2) a subsequent management plan was not arbitrary and capricious for failing to remove motorized uses in the Colorado River Corridor immediately.
