Niobrara Confluence/ Ponca Bluffs Conservation Areas - Land Protection Plan and DEIS

Posted: Apr 30, 2013

Comment deadline: June 14,2013

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service have developed a draft environmental impact statement and land protection plan for the proposed Niobrara Confluence and Ponca Bluffs Conservation Areas. These conservation areas would build on existing conservation efforts along the Missouri River in northeast Nebraska and southeast South Dakota.

In creating these areas, the agencies would work with willing private landowners, local communities, and other conservation entities to conserve important wildlife habitats, increase quality recreational opportunities, preserve sensitive cultural sites, and maintain sustainable farming and ranching operations in the region.

Learn more about the proposed conservation areas, and read the DEIS.
