JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Yellowstone National Park is seeking volunteers to fill five working groups that will help come up with a winter adaptive management plan.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (http://bit.ly/1bbBOOk ) the groups are set to meet at least three times by phone or in person over the next six months and will discuss park soundscape and air quality, wildlife, the non-commercially guided snowmobile access program, winter-use operations and technology, and the visitor experience.

Participants will then be asked to submit verbal and written comments to the National Park Service on the development of a monitoring strategy for their assigned topic.
