winter plan

Yellowstone National Park is preparing to kick-off on Friday what they are calling a “Collaborative Adaptive Management Program” to evaluate the implementation and environmental impacts of its new winter use management rule.  Spokesman Al Nash says the program will allow the Park to gather more information about park resource conditions through scientific monitoring and to seek additional public input on what resources are most important to monitor.  He says during the winter use planning process and as part of the final EIS and record of decision, the park had promised that it would engage interested parties to help develop and adaptive management program.   Nash assures, “We have a plan in place; but we promised we were going to take a look at how actual activity was playing out on the landscape and ask people who are interested in helping us to develop a mechanism to monitor and to consider ways to use that to make some tweaks to the plan in the future. Nash says the meeting is open to concessioners and private interests alike. The meeting is being held at Montana State University in Bozeman. Those who cannot attend may do so remotely online and may contact 344-2265 for instructions. Nash says subsequent meetings may also be scheduled in other venues near the park.
