This facilitator will work with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, other various agencies, the public, and a wide variety of stakeholders in developing a management plan for Rosebud Battlefield State Park. The 3,052-acre site is most known for the locale of the 1876 Battle of Rosebud Creek. This multiple-use park offers a wealth of diverse values for pre-historic, historic, military, natural, cultural and recreational opportunities for Montana citizens and visitors. FWP developed a management strategy in 2003 to state the Department’s basic goals and management objectives. The plan at hand will likely take 18 months to complete, and will be more comprehensive in acquiring public input to identify issues and develop strategies to manage those issues over the next ten years or more.
