PAWG Plans March 26 Meeting

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office will host the Pinedale Anticline Working Group (PAWG) meeting at 1:00 p.m. on March 26, 2009. The meeting will be held at the BLM Office at 1625 W. Pine Street in Pinedale, Wyo.

The meeting will include continued discussions regarding the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Pinedale Anticline Project Area Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, adaptive management implementation as a result of the ROD, and updates and recommendations from resource task groups. Public comment will be taken during the meeting. For more information please contact the BLM; 307-367-5300.

The BLM manages more land – 258 million acres – than any other Federal agency.  This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western States, including Alaska.  The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation.  The BLM’s multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.  The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
