BLM to Host Little Snowies Forest Health Public Meeting


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will host a public meeting Tuesday, January 18  from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Lewistown Field Office (920 NE Main Street) to invite public comments regarding a Forest Health Project in the Little Snowy Mountains.

The “East Little Snowies” project area includes approximately 4,680 acres of BLM managed public land in Fergus County that is managed by the BLM’s Lewistown Field Office. The project area also includes 40 acres in Musselshell County, which is administered out of the Billings Field Office. 

The BLM has drafted a proposed action to present to the public. However, “the proposal is in no way a final action and we will rely on public input to help us fine tune any ideas before proceeding in these areas,” offered Bruce Reid, a forester with the BLM.

If you are unable to attend this meeting, but would like to be kept informed, or if you have questions or comments, please contact Bruce Reid at 406 538-1960.



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.
