The Commission will also hear updates on the 2018 legislative session, the Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout Collaborative Working Group, the public engagement and strategic planning process, the Whiskey Mountain Conservation Camp and the implementation of Chapter 60--the regulations that allows for certified game bird farm licensees to collect sage-grouse eggs from the wild and raise them.

In-person public comment opportunities are available during each specific agenda item and on any topic the public can speak to the Commission on March 14 and 15 at the end of the day; an agenda can be found on the Commission webpage. The meeting will be live-streamed on the Internet. Learn more and watch here.
