Winter Plan Meetings Draw Crowds

winter plan

Despite the public meetings regarding the latest proposals for Yellowstone National Park’s winter use plan coming during the busy summer tourist season, substantial audiences showed up last week at all four venues to hear the four options and the preferred alternative explained.  The largest of those crowds, says Park Spokesman Al Nash, was about 50 strong in Cody.  Nash says the groups showed significant interest in the new plans and sought more information about the provisions.  The subject of entry into the park without a commercial guide was one that was brought up in all four locations.  Under the preferred alternative, one group of privately led snowmobilers at each entrance would be allowed each day.  Nash stresses that these groups are not unguided groups, but led by private individuals who have been trained. Nash says it appeared that those attending the four meetings found a certain amount in the current document and the preferred alternative they considered interesting and even positive about.  However, there are still substantive suggestions being offered.  Those comments and suggestions are being accepted between now and August 20th which can be offered online or mailed to the park.
