BOZEMAN - Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks will host an open house tonight to discuss the possible transfer of the Madison Buffalo State Park from FWP to the Department of Natural Resources Conservation organization.
The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at the Fish Wildlife and Regional Headquarters in Bozeman at 1400 South 19th Avenue. The open house will have a short presentation, along with a question and answer session. The purpose of the open house is to discuss ideas, and collect comments regarding possible ways for Fish Wildlife and Parks to keep the Madison Buffalo Jump State Park.
"That's what I'm hopeful for, that people will come tonight and put their idea caps on and come up with some innovative ways that we might be able to stay involved with this site," says Regional Parks Manager for Fish Wildlife and Parks, Jerry Walker.
Due to budget constraints, FWP can no longer financially afford to maintain the park, one of the main reasons for the decision to transfer the land to DNRC.
The meeting will begin tonight at 6 pm. The public is welcome.
