Public lands are vital to our country’s heritage. These lands belong to all American citizens and they are managed by federal agencies, such as BLM, National Park Service, and US Forest Service.
Eighteen million surface acres of public lands are administered in Wyoming by the BLM. Hundreds of miles of national historic trails are found on these lands. Public lands also offer a variety of recreation opportunities, including hiking, camping, fishing, hunting and wildlife watching. While enjoying your public lands heritage, be aware of historical and cultural resources and help preserve the inspirational beauty of these lands for the generations to come.
