HELENA, Mont. (AP) - State wildlife officials will host five public hearings in August on a draft environmental impact statement for bison conservation and management in Montana.

The draft report prepared by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks considers the possibility of restoring bison somewhere in the state where the animals could be managed as a native species.

The hearings for discussion and public comment will take place at the Holiday Inn in Bozeman on Aug. 4; the Holiday Inn Grand in Billings on Aug. 5; Great Falls College Montana State University in Great Falls on Aug. 18; Malta High School in Malta on Aug. 19; and at the Bureau of Land Management Office in Miles City on Aug. 26.

All meetings will take place from 6-9 p.m.
