Lander BLM Releases Green Mountain
Common Allotment Environmental Assessment (EA)
for Public Comment
The Lander Field Office is asking the public to review and comment on the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Green Mountain Common Allotment (GMCA). The GMCA is one of the largest unfenced common allotments in the State of Wyoming, totaling 522,000 acres. Most of the land within the allotment is public land: 86 percent is public, 9 percent is state-owned, and 5 percent is privately-owned.
Bob Ross, Lander Field Manager, said “The GMCA interdisciplinary team has identified four alternatives for inclusion in the EA aimed at addressing the GMCA resource issues and improving rangeland health,” he said. “Now, we need to give the public the opportunity to comment on these alternatives.” The EA is available by visiting the BLM website at:
For those without internet access, a copy of the EA may be obtained by contacting the Lander Field Office at (307) 332-8400.
Comments on this EA will be accepted until May 28, 2008. Comments may be submitted by mail to John Likins, rangeland management specialist; Lander Field Office; P.O. Box 589; Lander, WY, 82520. Comments may be submitted by facsimile to (307) 332-8444, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A copy of the EA is also available for public review at either the Lander Field Office or the Wyoming BLM State Office in Cheyenne, Wyo.
