BLM Pinedale Anticline Working Group Hosts Field Tour and Meeting


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Anticline Working Group (PAWG) has scheduled one of its quarterly meetings for Friday, Aug. 13 at 9 a.m. in the Pinedale Field Office Rendezvous Room. This meeting will focus on wildlife issues and task group retooling.

A companion wildlife field tour is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 12, at 9 a.m. and will highlight various wildlife issues such as raptor platforms, the river corridor, prey density and well pad wildlife fencing.

The field tour is open to the public and will depart from the Pinedale Field Office. Space is limited and interested persons are asked to reserve a place with Shelley Gregory at 307-367-5328 or shelley_gregory@blm.gov.

The PAWG is tasked with providing balanced recommendations to the BLM on the development and implementation of monitoring plans, mitigation and adaptive management decisions pertinent to oil and gas activities in the Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA). It is also an important conduit for public concerns as well as outreach. Additional information about the PAWG can be found at: www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/pinedale/pawg.html, or by contacting Shelley Gregory at 307-367-5328 or shelley_gregory@blm.gov.



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.
