Public may encounter logging activity this fall on BLM lands in Grand County
KREMMLING, Colo. – The Bureau of Land Management wants the public to be aware they could encounter delays and increased heavy truck traffic in two areas on BLM-administered lands in Grand County this fall due to pine beetle mitigation projects.
The on-going operations are in Game Management Unit 18. One is along Grouse Mountain Road, which is accessed from Grand County Road 21 north of Parshall. The other is along BLM Black Mountain Road #2757 off of Grand County Road 2, east of Kremmling.
“We appreciate the public’s patience during these operations,” said Kremmling Field Manager Stephanie Odell. “The beetle-killed trees are being removed to increase public safety along the road, improve forest health and wildlife habitat, and reduce fire danger.”
For more information, contact the BLM Kremmling Field Office, (970) 724-3000.
The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2012, activities on public lands generated $4.6 billion in revenue, much of which was shared with the States where the activities occurred. In addition, public lands contributed more than $112 billion to the U.S. economy and helped support more than 500,000 jobs.
