EA Released For YNP Bechler Region

bechler

The National Park Service is seeking public comment on a plan to improve the administrative area of the Bechler region of Yellowstone National Park. Known as the “Cascade Corner” for its numerous waterfalls, Bechler was originally developed as an outpost to houseU.S. Army soldiers who were responsible for patrolling for poachers in this remote area of the park.  The region’s rich wildlife, scenery and backcountry waterfall destinations have grown in popularity in recent years, prompting the park to look at ways to help improve visitor experience and park operations. This involved analyzing the impacts of day use and overnight parking, traffic circulation, employee housing, telecommunication functions and other infrastructure requirements. The analysis also involved considering the impact on the area’s natural resources.  The resulting plan has been released as an environmental assessment which is open for public review at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/BechlerEA
