FWP sets meetings on land acquisition

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will hold two public hearings next week to answer questions and hear comments on a proposal to add 425 acres to the Grant Marsh Wildlife Management Area seven miles north of Hardin in Big Horn County.
The Billings meeting will be Monday, Feb. 13, 6-8 p.m. at FWP’s Region 5 headquarters, 2300 Lake Elmo Dr. in Billings Heights.
In January FWP issued an environmental assessment, which recommends purchase of the property with management goals of riparian wildlife habitat conservation, upland habitat enhancement primarily for white-tailed deer and pheasants, and providing substantial public hunting and recreational opportunities.
The environmental assessment is available online to read or download at http://fwp.mt.gov and follow links to News, Recent Public Notices, and Grant Marsh WMA Environmental Assessment.​
In addition to the two hearings, people are encouraged to make comments in writing or online. The deadline for comments on the proposed purchase is 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, 2017.
Written comments should go to: Megan O’Reilly, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, 2300 Lake Elmo Drive, Billings MT 59105
Emailed comments may go to O’Reilly at moreilly@mt.gov
A form for online submission of written comments is on the Grant Marsh WMA Environmental Assessment page of FWP’s web site.
