BLM High Desert District asks for Public Input on Proposed Invasive Plant Management Plan


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale, Rock Springs, and Kemmerer Field Offices are seeking comments on a proposed Invasive Plant Management Plan.

Invasive plants are non-native plants causing harm to the economy, the environment, or human health. They are compromising BLM’s ability to manage for a healthy native ecosystem.

The BLM is proposing to manage invasive plants throughout the Pinedale, Rock Springs, and Kemmerer Field Offices by using integrated methods including: biological and physical controls, and herbicides.

A preliminary environmental assessment (EA) is available for your review. The public comment period runs from May 1 to June 30. Written comments may be submitted to the BLM Pinedale Field Office, PO Box 768, Pinedale WY 82941; by fax 307-367-5329; or by email to deej_brown@blm.gov.

A copy of the EA can be obtained at the Pinedale Field Office, 1625 West Pine Street in Pinedale, the Rock Springs Field Office, 280 Hwy. 191 North, the Kemmerer Field Office, 312 Highway 189 North, or on-line at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/pfodocs.html.

For more information, please contact Deej Brown at 307-367-5391.



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.
