Volunteers Needed for Clean-up Near Basin


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office is hosting a clean-up on Saturday, July 10, near Basin.

Volunteers should plan to meet at 7:30 a.m. on the Basin Gardens Road, 3 miles south of Hwy. 14. Bring gloves, a water bottle and a rake and magnets for nails if you have them. Wear boots or sturdy shoes. Water and some tools will be provided.

According to BLM Ranger Aaron Kania, the project was suggested by local recreationists offering to help clean-up an area they enjoy. "In addition to cleaning-up, the BLM will provide the trailer and pay the landfill fees," said Kania. "We appreciate any assistance from the public toward the improvement of this popular area."

The public land in the area is heavily used by recreationists, including off-highway vehicle users. One of the projects on July 10 will be separating cans, glass and metals for recycling.

For more information, please contact the Worland Field Office at 307-347-5100.



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.
