Butte Field Office 2010 Land Health Reports Available


Evaluation Reports completed during the 2010 field season on nine livestock grazing allotments located in the Bureau of Land Management’s Butte Field Office are now available at www.blm.gov/mt/st/en/fo/butte_field_office/landhealth.html.

The land health assessments are conducted to determine if public lands are meeting the Western Montana Standards for Rangeland Health. Standards include: maintaining properly functioning upland and riparian areas, assuring that water quality and air quality meet state standards, and providing for biodiversity.

The information in these reports will be used over the winter to analyze renewal of grazing permits and other activities in these areas.

Copies of the reports can also be reviewed by making an appointment at the Butte Field Office located at 106 North Parkmont. For more information, call Tanya Thrift at (406) 533-7600.


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.
