The Draft Billings and Pompeys Pillar National Monument Resource Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement proposes different alternatives for managing public lands within the Billings Field Office boundary.  The draft plan also includes a range of conservation measures that address Greater Sage-Grouse in the area.

The open houses will include introductions and a brief BLM presentation, but the purpose of the gathering is to offer an opportunity to talk one-on-one with various BLM resource specialists to gain information about what is in the plan. The BLM is not recording verbal comments during the open houses, but comment forms will be provided for members of the public to submit written comments. The draft document can be viewed on the internet at http://blm.gov/4ykd.

The comment period ends on June 28, 2013. The public may submit written comments related to the Billings and Pompeys Pillar National Monument DRMP/EIS by any of the following methods:
