The project will be directed by National Park Service staff in partnership with the Montana Conservation Corps, and is being considered for funding by the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Recreational Trails Program. If funded, the project and will take place during the summer of 2012.

Written comments should be emailed to bill_hopkins@nps.gov, or mailed to Bill Hopkins, Backcountry Trails Office, P.O. Box 168, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming 82190, and received no later than June 2, 2011.
