Yellowstone National Park will hold a public meeting on Monday, August 10, 2015, from 10 am to 3 pm at the Visitor Information Center in West Yellowstone, Montana, to discuss the park’s draft Winter Use Adaptive Management Plan. The draft plan outlines a strategy to identify which affected resources should be most closely monitored and evaluated, how these resources should be monitored and how the NPS will continually engage the public throughout the process. It was developed with input from working groups comprised of members of the public who contribute expertise across six impact topics.
The morning session of the public meeting will include updates on the development of the draft plan. In the afternoon park staff will solicit input for prioritizing the metrics for the impact monitoring program. To assist with logistics and preparation, those planning to attend the meeting are asked to email an RSVP to e-mail us.
