Ram Mountain Environmental Assessment Available For Review


The Bureau of Land Management’s Missoula Field Office has prepared an Environmental Assessment for proposed actions that would affect resource conditions within the Ram Mountain Allotment in Granite County, west of Philipsburg.

The EA is available for public review with a comment period ending on March 8. Copies of the EA are available at the Missoula Field Office or by requesting it from the Missoula Field Office at 3255 Fort Missoula Road, Missoula MT 59804-7293.

The EA’s proposals include riparian and stream habitat projects and renewal of a grazing lease on public lands within the Ram Mountain Allotment.  These actions are proposed to improve rangeland health, wildlife habitat, and riparian/stream habitats. It also calls for  reauthorization of livestock grazing on the Ram Mountain Allotment in a manner that maintains or improves resource conditions.

If you have questions about the EA’s proposals, contact  John Hill at the Missoula Field Office at (406) 329-3914.


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 mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
