NHTIC Announces Holiday Hours


The Bureau of Land Management’s National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) will be closed several days during the holiday season.

The NHTIC will be closed for the holidays Dec. 24 through Dec. 27, and from Dec. 31, 2010 through Jan. 3, 2011. The normal winter hours of operation, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, will resume on Jan. 4, 2011.

“BLM, including the Historic Trails Center staff, wish to convey their thanks to the Casper community, volunteers, and partners for their support and attendance in 2010,” said NHTIC Center Director Mike Abel.

The NHTIC is a part of the BLM's National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS). The areas of the NLCS are specifically designed to conserve, protect and restore the exceptional scientific, natural, cultural, ecological, historical, and recreation values of these treasured landscapes.

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 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.
