Plan Now to Attend! Interagency Hunting and Recreation Open Houses along the HiLine


MALTA, Mont.  – Here’s your chance to talk face-to-face with a friendly person who is familiar with the area and can answer your specific hunting and recreation questions. If you’re one of the many people who enjoy the outdoors and like to take advantage of the countless outdoor recreation opportunities in Montana, chances are you have visited a variety of public lands administered by different State and Federal agencies.  It’s always a good idea to plan ahead, know where you’re going, and become familiar with what regulations and opportunities apply to different public and private lands you’ll visit.  For the latest BLM news and updates visit us on the web at: www.blm.gov/mt/st/en.html and on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/BLMMontana.

“While websites, brochures, maps and manuals are all helpful, sometimes it’s nice to just be able to talk with a real person and get immediate and accurate answers,” HiLine District Manager Mark Albers said.  “We’ll have representatives from the Bureau of Land Management; Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks; U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; Corps of Engineers; and Bureau of Reclamation standing by.”
 
There will be a series of open houses along the HiLine this fall intended to provide a one-stop-shopping opportunity for all of your hunting and other outdoor recreation questions.  Agency representatives can provide information about recreating on public lands and private lands that are enrolled in Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ Block Management Program.
 
The first open house will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 8, at the BLM Glasgow Field Office located one block off Highway 2 on the east end of Glasgow at 5 Lasar Drive.  Subsequent information sessions will be held in Malta on October 15 and in Havre on October 19.  More details on the Malta and Havre open houses will be provided at a later date.
 
For more information about any of these open houses, call Kathy Tribby at (406) 654-5124 or Michael Nye (MT FWP) at (406) 228-3708. 


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.
