Planning Update
Proposed Niobrara Confluence and Ponca Bluffs Conservation Areas

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the National Park Service (NPS) have developed a draft
environmental impact statement (EIS) and land protection plan for the proposed Niobrara Confluence and Ponca Bluffs Conservation Areas. These conservation areas would build on existing conservation efforts along the Missouri River in northeast Nebraska and southeast South Dakota. In creating these areas, we would work with willing private landowners, local communities, and other conservation entities to conserve important wildlife habitats, increase quality recreational opportunities, preserve sensitive cultural sites, and maintain sustainable farming and ranching operations in the region.

This planning update announces the availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement and provides other information on the project, how to obtain copies and how to comment on the document.
