A private landowner with property inside the park boundary is willing to transfer their land to the National Park Service in exchange for U.S. Forest Service land outside the park. Once the transfer is completed, the park’s bison will be able to access new areas of the park, providing them more space in places where more visitors will see them.
It’s a win-win-win.
The U.S. Forest Service is looking for public input on this proposed land exchange. The landowner, the Park Service, and the Forest Service are all in support of this great opportunity. Now we need you to show your support of the Badlands bison, too.
Take Action: Send your comments to the U.S. Forest Service and tell them you support this land exchange at Badlands National Park. It is good for the national park and good for the bison who call the park home.
Thank you for taking a moment to help protect Badlands National Park and its bison!
