The JIO and PAPO to hold Agency Managers Committee and
Mitigation Management Board meetings on April 21, 2010


The Jonah Interagency Office (JIO) and Pinedale Anticline Project Office (PAPO) will hold their Agency Managers Committee and Mitigation Management Board meetings on April 21, 2010. The meetings will run from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.at the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) Pinedale Field Office at 1625 West Pine Street in Pinedale, Wyo.

Both meetings are open to the public and include a review of new and ongoing mitigation projects as well as other business. The mitigation projects are designed to offset the impacts resulting from intensive oil and gas development on BLM-administered public lands in the Green River valley. The mitigation projects include, but are not limited to, conservation easements, on-the-ground conservation practices, wildlife-friendly fence modification projects, livestock mitigation projects and wildlife escape-ramp installations.

For additional information regarding the meetings, the JIO or the PAPO, please visit http://www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo/, or contact JIO-PAPO Project Coordinator Jim Lucas at 307-367-5361.



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.
