The agencies entrusted with managing federal lands within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem are asking the public to help them determine which ecosystem issues should be the focus in the future.

The Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee is a group of 11 federal agencies 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 in a conversation in late March in Jackson, Wyo. Rather than hold a discussion about individual agency issues, the managers want the public to share their thoughts on cross-jurisdictional, ecosystem scale issues where they believe GYCC should focus in the coming years. Specifically, the GYCC wishes to explore questions related to cross-agency land and resource management opportunities, GYE-level priorities the GYCC should focus on and future communication and collaboration with the public and stakeholder groups.

The conversation between the public and GYCC leadership is set for 1-5 p.m. on March 24 at the Teton County Library, 125 Virginian Lane, in Jackson, Wyo. 

Those who plan to attend are asked to commit to attending the full four-hour session and to RSVP by March 19 to gycc-march24@fs.fed.us.
