Most natural resource projects on federal or state lands require projects to have studies estimating the proposed project's environmental impacts. Examples of these types of studies are the Federal government's Environmental Impact Study (EIS) and Environmental Assessment (EA). 

During the environmental study period concerned and affected parties have their greatest opportunity for direct input on the proposed project. At no other time are natural resource projects subjected to greater public scrutiny and influence.
