BLM Seeks Public Comment on Wilderness Management Plan

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District is asking for the public’s comments on the Big Rocks, Mount Irish and South Pahroc Range Draft Wilderness Management Plan and Environmental Assessment.

The public comment period concludes at 5 p.m., Friday, June 15, 2007. Interested individuals should address all written comments to the BLM Ely Field Office, HC 33 Box 33500, Ely, NV 89301.

The Big Rocks, Mount Irish and South Pahroc Range Draft Wilderness Management Plan and Environmental Assessment is available on the BLM Ely District website, at www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/ely. Paper copies are available at the BLM Ely Field Office, at 702 N. Industrial Way, in Ely, Nev., and BLM Caliente Field Station, at 1400 S. Front Street, in Caliente, Nev.

The BLM has prepared a single management plan for the three wilderness areas because of their proximity and similarity of issues. The plan provides the Ely BLM primary guidance on all decisions affecting the wilderness and establishes management practices that will maintain and protect their values for this and future generations.

For more information, call Steve Leslie, BLM Ely Field Office wilderness planner, at (775) 289-1800.
