Preferred and Environmentally Preferable Alternatives--Elk Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement
The National Park Service (NPS) is pleased to announce that we have identified a preferred alternative for managing the elk population at Theodore Roosevelt National Park. We have also identified an environmentally preferable alternative.
NPS is seeking comments on both the preferred and the environmentally preferable alternative at this time. Information on how and where to comment is included on the last page of the newsletter.
The entire Draft Elk Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) was open for public comment for a 90-day period from December 17, 2008 to March 19, 2009. While you may comment on any aspect of the DEIS at this time, we ask that you try to confine your comments to the preferred and environmentally preferable alternatives and issues surrounding those alternatives.
You can download a copy of the entire DEIS by clicking on the "Document List" tab to the left and then clicking on the "Draft Elk Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement" link; or you may request a copy of the DEIS from the park at the address listed below.
NPS will accept comments from the public for 30 days, beginning August 10, 2009, and concluding September 9, 2009. You may mail comments to the name and address below or click the "Comment On Document" link on the left to submit comments electronically.
Before including your address, telephone number, electronic mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comments, you should be aware that your entire comment (including your personal identifying information) may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comments to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
