BLM Sponsors Climb to Conquer Cancer on Muddy Mountain


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Casper Field Office is cooperating with the American Cancer Society in its fight against cancer. On June 26, the American Cancer Society will host the Climb to Conquer Cancer on Muddy Mountain, located 20 minutes south of Casper, Wyo.

The Climb to Conquer Cancer is a unique, noncompetitive walk to raise awareness and funds to fight cancer. Participants will walk 5 miles up Muddy Mountain Road surrounded by the beautiful mountains and wild flowers of Wyoming. Walkers will be greeted on top of the mountain by live entertainment and lunch at BLM’s Rim Campground.

"The BLM has been fantastic at providing support for this project," said Rita Miller of the American Cancer Society. "Together we are making a difference both in the community and in the fight against cancer."

Cancer survivors will be honored at Rim Campground after 11 a.m. Please contact the American Cancer Society for more information.

People interested in this event may send an email to www.casperclimb@yahoo.com, call Rita Miller at (307) 235-0044 or go to www.casperclimb.com to register a team. Volunteers are always welcome and appreciated.



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.
