Public meeting March 20 to discuss plan for Goat Island

LINCOLN, Neb. – A public meeting regarding future uses of Goat Island, located within the boundary of the Missouri National Recreational River near Vermillion, S.D., will be hosted by the National Park Service on March 20.

The open house meeting will be held at the W. H. Over Museum, 1110 N. University St., Vermillion, from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

The meeting is an opportunity for the public to learn about and provide comments on a proposed Management Plan and Environmental Assessment for Goat Island (also known as Jake’s Island). The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has been involved in development of that draft plan.

People who cannot attend the meeting can review the documents and provide comments through April 10, 2019, at https://parkplanning.nps.gov/goatislandplan.

Outdoor recreational activities evaluated and considered as alternatives in the plan include, but are not limited to, hunting, fishing, trapping, kayaking and primitive camping.
