The open house will provide the public an opportunity to meet the BLM employees who are working with cooperating state and local agencies to develop a revised Resource Management Plan (RMP) for public lands in the Lander Field Office area.

BLM and cooperating agencies have been working together on this project for the past two years. Public input, provided at meetings and through written comments, has been integral to the process. To keep the public informed, the field office website is updated with reports and summaries produced throughout the RMP process.

The Fremont County Library is located at 200 Amoretti Street in Lander. For more information, please contact RMP Project Lead Kristin Yannone at 307-332-8400. Visit the Lander website for the most current RMP information: http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Lander.html.



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.
