Below is a news release from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is seeking public input on its draft elk management plan.

The purpose of the plan, which is a working document, is to provide background and historical information about elk in Nebraska, while providing guidance in the decision-making process.

Game and Parks will host two virtual public informational meetings on the plan: 7 p.m. Central time Sept. 20 and 2 p.m. Sept. 22. To view the plan or register for the virtual meetings, visit OutdoorNebraska.gov/elkplan.

The public may give feedback on the plan by commenting during the virtual meeting, using the comment submission form on the plan webpage or by emailing luke.meduna@nebraska.gov.

The public may comment on the draft plan through Sept. 30.

Since 1994, RMEF and its partners completed 96 conservation and hunting heritage outreach projects in Nebraska with a combined value of more than $11.8 million. These projects protected or enhanced 32,827 acres of habitat and opened or improved public access to 16,237 acres. Recently, RMEF provided funding for new Nebraska elk research.
