BLM Pinedale Anticline Working Group Announces Field Tour and Meeting Cancellation


The Aug. 12 wildlife field tour and Aug. 13 meeting of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Anticline Working Group (PAWG) has been cancelled due to Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) Federal Register notice requirements. The field tour and meeting will be rescheduled for September or October.

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 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.
