YELLOWSTONE WOLF REINTRODUCTION INFORMATIONAL MEETING SCHEDULED

 YELLOWSTONE WOLF REINTRODUCTION INFORMATIONAL MEETING SCHEDULED
 The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (service) is developing an environmental impact statement (EIS) for a proposal to reintroduce gray wolves into Yellowstone National Park. An informational meeting on the reintroduction proposal and the EIS will be held from 4 - 8 p.m. on April 22 at the University of Minnesota's Gabbert Raptor Research and Rehabilitation Center on the St. Paul campus. The Raptor Center is located at 1920 Firch Avenue, St. Paul, Minn., on the western edge of the state fairgrounds. Parking for the informational meeting is available in the fairgrounds parking lots and near the Earle Brown Continuing Education Center.
 The meeting will use an open house format, enabling individuals to come and go as they like. The session will feature a video of the reintroduction proposal and various alternatives for restoring wolves into the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and a representative from the service's Helena, Mont., office will be on hand to provide additional explanation and answer questions. Individuals attending the open house will be able to express their concerns and opinions by completing survey forms which will be used in preparation of the environmental impact statement. Individuals can add their names to a mailing list to receive additional information.
 "Yellowstone National Park and the endangered gray wolf belong to all of the citizens of the United States," stated John Rogers, Jr., acting director of the service's Region 3. "The Service hopes to involve interested individuals nationwide in the reintroduction proposal, and to gain a broad spectrum of public input for the EIS."
 More information on the meeting can be obtained by calling the Twin Cities Regional Office, Division of Endangered Species, at 612-725-3276.
 As an agency of the Department of the Interior, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service enhances, protects, preserves and restores fish and wildlife resources throughout the nation. Region 3 has responsibility for the states of Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, Missouri and Ohio.
