BLM and Nature Conservancy Offer Bird Walk


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office, in partnership with The Nature Conservancy, will host a free bird walk on Saturday, June 12, at the Tensleep Preserve near Ten Sleep, Wyo.

Participants will meet at 7:00 a.m. where the pavement ends on Rome Hill Road (state Highway 436), almost 6 miles south of U.S. Highway 16, and caravan to locations within the Tensleep Preserve. BLM Natural Resources Specialist C.J. Grimes will help participants find and identify some of the many species of birds that inhabit the preserve.

"The diversity of habitat within the preserve makes it a fun and interesting place for bird watching," Grimes said. In addition to pristine riparian habitat along a 12-mile stretch of Canyon Creek, the Tensleep Preserve boasts canyons, uplands and forests and is home to more than 120 species of birds.

Participants should bring binoculars, water and snacks, and wear good walking shoes and appropriate clothing for rain or shine.

For more information, contact C.J. Grimes at 307-347-5100. To learn more about the Tensleep Preserve, visit www.nature.org.



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.
