Park Improvements Eyed

bechler

Yellowstone National Park has begun looking at ways it might improve the Bechler Area located in the park’s remote southwest corner.  Other than US Highway 191 which skirts the western boundary of Yellowstone,  the Bechler Area is the singular section of the park that is not connected to the Grand Loop road system.  The area is accessed at the end of a gravel road 26 miles east of Ashton, Idaho, and an historic ranger station serves as the centerpiece of the small administrative site just north of Cave Falls.  That’s Park Spokesman Al Nash who says the National Park Service is looking at ways it might improve facilities and services there while preserving the historic character of the area.  Specifically, the park will look at ideas such as improving parking, utility upgrades, and addressing employee housing. The first step in preparing a plan and Environmental Assessment is to ask the public to help identify issues that the park staff should consider.  Nash says this process, known as public scoping, is now open and runs through March 4th.  Nash says additional details on the proposal and an electronic form to submit comments on the internet can be found at the National Park Service’s Planning, Environment and Public Comment website.

  • Happy Thanksgiving, Wyoming! - November 27, 2014
    I know, a show about giving thanks on Thanksgiving is pretty predictable. But it doesn’t feel right to overlook the importance of this day. However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
  • Very Windy in Many Areas, Developing Light to Moderate Snow - November 25, 2014

Light to moderate snow shower activity will also be increasing […]
