Ungulate Management Plan/EIS
The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process provided stakeholders the opportunity to comment on the scope of the plan in 2011 and 2015, and after release of the Draft EIS in 2018. The NPS also prepared an Abbreviated Final EIS that we released to the public in 2019.

On September 16, 2019, the National Park Service released the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve (GRSA) Ungulate Management Plan (UMP). The National Park Service developed this UMP to manage elk and bison within GRSA in a way that would support long-term protection of resources; and be compatible with conditions and management activities across the broader eastern San Luis Valley landscape.
