BLM Buffalo Field Office hosts National Public Lands Day Event


On Saturday, Sept. 26, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Buffalo Field Office is celebrating National Public Lands Day (NPLD) by teaming up with volunteers to put up kiosks in the Middle Fork Management Area.

Volunteers will place two kiosks in the Middle Fork Management Area located 20 miles southwest of Kaycee, Wyo. BLM staff and volunteers will meet at the Outlaw Cave Campground at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26.

The public is invited to join BLM and volunteer at this event. Wear appropriate foot wear, and bring water, snacks, gloves, and sunscreen.

If you have questions or are interested in participating in the NPLD event, please contact Allison Ginn in the BLM Buffalo Field Office at (307) 684-1116. Directions and information about Outlaw Cave Campground are available online at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Buffalo/recreation/middlefork.html.

National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. In 2008, 120,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, removed trash and invasive plants, and planted over 1.6 million trees.



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.
