The Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee (GYCC) will host a public meeting Wednesday, November 4, 2015 beginning at 1:00 PM at Hotel Terra in Teton Village, Wyo.
The GYCC is a group of eleven federal land managers who work together to manage more than 15 million acres of public land in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.
GYCC managers are inviting the public to join them for an open session that will serve to continue the conversations and dialogue started at previous meetings held in Bozeman, Montana as well as Cody and Jackson, Wyoming.
During the “Continuing the Conversation” portion of the meeting, several managers will provide an overview of the feedback provided by the public from the three recent public conversations and GYCC’s proposed next steps. Members of the public will be encouraged to ask questions and provide additional thoughts on how GYCC can better engage the public and effectively communicate the great work of the subcommittees, as well as the accomplishments, issues, and challenges of GYCC land management agencies. A draft agenda is available at: http://fedgycc.org/meetings-and-events.
The public session will also provide updates from GYCC subcommittees and will highlight collaborative native fish restoration efforts in Shoshone National Forest and Yellowstone National Park. The afternoon session will close with a highly anticipated presentation by David Quammen, the sole author of the May 2016 Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem National Geographic Magazine. A question and answer session with David will follow.
All are welcome. For more information please contact Acting Executive Coordinator Bianca Klein at Bianca_Klein@nps.gov.
