Casper Field Office Plans Prescribed Burn


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Casper Field Office is planning to conduct a prescribed burn within Converse County, Wyo.

The project is located west of Esterbrook in Section 17 and 18, Township 28 North, Range 71 West. Implementation of the prescribed burn is planned for Thursday June 11, 2009.

BLM plans to treat approximately 15 acres in the Ponderosa Pine forest. The objectives of the prescribed fire are to improve fuel breaks adjacent to private property and promote forest health.

This prescribed burn project will be conducted in accordance with an approved burn plan if favorable weather and fuel conditions permit. For more information, please contact CJ Grimes at (307) 261-7681.



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.
