Reminder: Yellowstone To Launch A Collaborative Adaptive Management Program For Winter Use

Yellowstone National Park is preparing to kick-off a collaborative Adaptive Management Program to evaluate the implementation and environmental impacts of its new winter use management rule.

Collaborative adaptive management will allow the National Park Service (NPS) 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 going forward.

An initial public meeting about Yellowstone’s Adaptive Management Program will be held in Bozeman, Montana, on Friday, November 22, 2013, at the Montana State University Engineering and Physical Sciences Building (Room 126) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For people and organizations who cannot attend this initial meeting in-person, the NPS will offer the option to participate remotely. The meeting will be a first step in the process to develop a collaborative winter use adaptive management plan and will include presentations about the park’s scientific monitoring on winter use and offer opportunities for public input and dialog about adaptive management.

Future winter use adaptive management meetings will be held in other communities throughout the region.

The NPS requests that all interested parties RSVP to confirm their meeting attendance or remote participation by Wednesday, November 20, using the contact information provided below.

Park managers will consider additional information obtained throughout the adaptive management planning process to assess and improve the management of winter use in Yellowstone National Park. Managers may also use this information to adjust NPS management actions in order to enhance the condition of park resources or the visitor experience.

For more information about Yellowstone’s Adaptive Management Program, please visit the program web page: http://www.nps.gov/yell/parkmgmt/wuamp.htm. To RSVP for the meeting and to receive login information for remote participation, please contact Rebecca Garvoille, Yellowstone’s Adaptive Management Coordinator, at (307) 344-2265 or e-mail us, by Wednesday, November 20, 2013.
