On Tuesday, February 22, 2011, at 7:15 PM in the large community room at the Bozeman Public Library, the first Yellowstone Bison “Citizens Working Group” meeting will take place. The meeting will be facilitated by Virginia Tribe, and the meeting is open to all interested citizens.

Tuesday’s meeting will be the first of a series of Yellowstone bison Citizens Working Group meetings, with the goal to get a diverse group of Montanans together to try to move the issue of Yellowstone bison forward. Participation is open to anyone, but continued attendance over the course of the series of meetings is expected.

The Interagency Bison Management Plan state and federal agencies and tribes are fully supporting the Citizens Working Group. No RSVP for Tuesday’s meeting is required.
