The JIO and PAPO to hold Agency Managers Committee and
Mitigation Management Board meetings on March 15, 2010


The Jonah Interagency (JIO) and Pinedale Anticline Project (PAPO) Offices will hold their Agency Managers Committee and Mitigation Management Board meetings on March 15, 2010, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office in Pinedale, Wyo.

The meetings are open to the public and include a review of new and ongoing mitigation projects as well as other business. The onsite and offsite mitigation projects are designed to offset the impacts caused by intensive oil and gas development on federal public lands in the Green River valley of western Wyoming. The mitigation projects include, but are not limited to, conservation easements, on-the-ground conservation practices, wildlife-friendly fence modification projects, livestock mitigation projects and wildlife escape-ramp installations.

For additional information regarding the meetings, the JIO or the PAPO, please visit http://www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo/, or contact Jim Lucas, JIO/PAPO Project Coordinator, 307-367-5361.



The BLM manages more land - 253 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
