Yellowstone Bison Management Plan
Thank you for your continued interest in Yellowstone-area bison. The National Park Service and the State of Montana held a public scoping comment period for the Yellowstone-area Bison Management Plan/EIS from March 16, 2015, to June 15, 2015. Three public open house meetings were held during the comment period at different locations in the vicinity of Yellowstone National Park. The public was encouraged to submit comments through this website. Comments were also accepted at the open house meetings, by postal mail, and in person at the park. Approximately 3,000 pieces of correspondence were received during the public scoping comment period, and approximately 8,830 comments were derived from all correspondence.

There you can access both the Comment Analysis Report, which provides a summary of comments received, and the Concern Report, which provides a more in-depth look at the public comments and includes representative quotes for each topic.
The National Park Service and the State of Montana will use the comments received in preparing the draft EIS, which is expected to be released for public comment in late 2016 or early 2017.
