Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will host three public listening sessions at the end of the month of August in order to gather public input on potential recreation management strategies for the Upper Madison River.

The meetings locations, dates, and times are as follows:

Bozeman: Monday, Aug. 29 at the Hilton Garden Inn (2023 Commerce Way), 7-9:30 p.m.

Ennis: Tuesday, Aug. 30 at the Ennis Elementary School cafeteria, 7-9:30 p.m.

West Yellowstone: Wednesday, Aug. 31 at the Holiday Inn (315 Yellowstone Ave.), 7-9:30 p.m.

At each of these three meetings, small groups facilitated by an FWP member will be used to gather suggestions and discuss management of recreation on the Madison. Some of the public contributions from these sessions may be included in the draft Madison River recreation environmental assessment scheduled to be released for public comment in November of 2016.

This effort continues a process that was started in 2013, and will lead to a decision notice that will impact the future of the upper Madison River management.

FWP encourages all individuals interested in Madison River recreation to attend
