Public comment extended for National Elk Refuge management plan
(Press release) — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has extended the comment period for a draft comprehensive conservation plan and environmental assessment for the National Elk Refuge in Teton. These draft documents describe how the service intends to manage the refuge for the next 15 years. The original comment period was set to expire on Oct. 9, but with the extension, the public now has until Oct. 24, 2014 to comment.
“We understand the National Elk Refuge is a special place for many people, and we value the public’s input,” said Refuge Manager, Steve Kallin. “We have been asked by the public for more time to review and provide comment on the draft CCP/EA, so we are honoring that request.”
The draft CCP and EA are companion documents to the National Elk Refuge Bison and Elk Management Plan and its contents, including supplemental feeding, are not part of this comment period.
