Winter Plan Presented Again

winter plan

The public has several opportunities this week to learn about a proposed new plan for winter use in Yellowstone National Park. Park Spokesman Al Nash explains that a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, which was released in late June, is open for public review and comment through August 20th.  Nash says participants will be briefed on the range of alternatives including the preferred alternative.  This he says will enable the public to submit really good comments and suggestions to help the park continue to move the process forward.  The favored alternative for the revised plan would deal with sound and air quality impacts of groups of winter travelers. Nash adds the preferred alternative proposes sound and emission standards for first time for snowcoaches as well as snowmobiles. Four public meetings will be held in communities surrounding the park, including one tonight at the Virginian Lodge beginning at 6:30 pm. Subsequent meetings will be held Tuesday in West Yellowstone, Montana, Wednesday in Bozeman, Montana and Thursday in Cody, Wyoming.  In addition to a presentation about the options under consideration, public comment will be accepted on the new supplemental EIS.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
  • Quiet, Seasonal Weather Expected Today - October 22, 2014
    High pressure will build over the state of Wyoming today, which will keep skies sunny to mostly sunny and conditions mainly dry.  Winds, however, could be strong and gusty today, especially throughout central and southeastern portions of the state.  Parts of I-80 (Cheyenne to Rawlins) and I-25 (Colorado state line to Casper) could see winds […]
  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
