Yellowstone National Park Winter Use Adaptive Management Plan

The Yellowstone Winter Use Adaptive Management Plan is the culmination of collaborative efforts by members of the public and park officials to use the best available science and public input to continually improve winter use management in Yellowstone National Park.

The Winter Use Adaptive Management Plan outlines a strategy to identify which park resources and winter topics should be closely monitored and evaluated, how they should be monitored, and how the NPS should engage the public throughout the process.

The plan was developed with input from working groups comprised of members of the public. It also reflects public comments from the draft Adaptive Management Plan released in May of 2015 and a public meeting held in August of 2015.
