The US Fish and Wildlife Service has taken the lead in working toward more land conservation in and near the Missouri River in south east South Dakota. The plan, called “The Niobrara and Ponca Confluence” has been open to public comment for several months. Now a state Senator is raising some objections.

Dan Lederman of Dakota Dunes says he doesn’t think enough people have taken notice of the process………

Lederman is concerned that changes in land status could have an impact in property taxes all along the river……

Lederman says the federal agencies are looking at a big land area along the river………

The public comment period had been extended for ninety days to September 30th. The plan details are online at fws.gov.
