Public Comment Open for Proposed Grazing EA at Rosebud Battlefield State Park

(Busby, MT) – Montana State Parks ( is seeking public comment for a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for a proposed Grazing Plan at Rosebud Battlefield State Park near Busby, MT. Comments will be accepted through Friday, July 31, 2017 at 5pm. The proposed project would establish a 3-year (renewable for additional 4 years) grazing program at the park under a lease agreement. The leasee(s) would be permitted to graze cattle within the park in exchange for the maintenance of existing and new fencing, heritage surveys, weed control and payment of cash once these other needs are met. Managing the vegetation within the park would enhance stewardship of land by protecting archeological, cultural, and historic resources and limiting fuel availability to wildfires thus reducing fire danger to the park and surrounding properties. Additionally, the grazing program would improve range health, spur plant growth, and improve wildlife habitat.
