Trail Center Returns to Winter Hours


With fall and winter fast approaching, the Bureau of Land Management’s National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) will return to winter hours of operation beginning Sunday, Oct. 11, 2009.

NHTIC’s winter hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday. These hours will be effective until mid-April 2010. The NHTIC will also be closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.

The NHTIC is a public-private partnership between the BLM and the National Historic Trails Center Foundation. The facility is located at 1501 N. Poplar Street, Casper, Wyo. The Center is currently operating on summer hours, and is open daily, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.



The BLM manages more land - 256 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.
