The Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee

  When land managers meet to talk about the greater Yellowstone ecosystem, they need a large table. The Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee is composed of the superintendents of Yellowstone and Grand Tetons national parks and the six supervisors from neighboring national forests. They'll get together in Jackson, Wyo., Oct. 7 and 8, to discuss air quality, the status of elk habitat, a recreation inventory and transportation needs, among other issues. The committee meets at the Wort Hotel and the public is welcome to attend. For more information, contact Jack de Golia, public affairs officer for the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, at 406/683-3984.
