MEDORA, ND: The National Park Service (NPS) is developing a Livestock Plan to address livestock, horse and cattle herds, within Theodore Roosevelt National Park, under relevant laws, regulations, policies, and park management priorities including the conservation of native species and natural prairie ecosystem functions. Members of the public are invited to submit comments on the plan’s proposed action and alternatives which are presented in the accompanying newsletter.  

Public participation is an important element of the planning process. We welcome your ideas, concerns, suggestions, and topics for consideration as we refine the alternatives. During the public comment period, the park will host a virtual public meeting on the Livestock Plan from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. Mountain Time on Thursday, January 12. More information on how to join the virtual public meeting can be found on the Planning, Environment & Public Comment (PEPC) website:

If you would like to provide a comment on the planning process, please submit your comments through January 31, 2023 online through the PEPC website or by U.S. mail to the following address.

Additional opportunities for public comment will be available later in this planning process. Following the scoping period, a draft Environmental Assessment will be prepared, and a final review and comment period will be announced. 

Before individuals include their address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in their comment, they should be aware that their entire comment, including their personal identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. Individuals may request that the NPS withhold their name and/or address from public disclosure. If individuals wish to do this, they must state this prominently at the beginning of their comment and make such a request by checking the box "keep my contact information private." on the website. The NPS will honor such requests to the extent allowable by law, but individuals should be aware that NPS may still be required to disclose personal identifying information.
