(Helena, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) announced today that a decision notice has been issued for the proposed First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park Prairie Dog Management Plan. The decision recommends to move forward with the Adaptive Management Alternative which will remove or reduce prairie dog populations where necessary to protect heritage resources while maintaining healthy prairie dog populations where they do not cause significant adverse impact. The Adaptive Management Alternative would manage prairie dog populations using a mix of efforts for and would treat management actions as experiments that have risk, yield data and improve future decision making. It was determined that the proposed action would have no significant effects on the human or physical environment. Therefore, an environmental impact statement will not be prepared. By notification of this Decision Notice, the Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) is hereby made the Final EA.
