BLM burns slash piles on
Billy Creek Road and Burnt Hollow


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Buffalo Field Office will be burning a total of 20 slash piles this spring in the Billy Creek Road project area.

The Billy Creek site is located 25 miles west of Buffalo off of Hazelton road on Highway 16. There are 2 acres of slash piles scheduled for burning at this site. The goal of the project is to reduce hazardous fuels by removing standing dead Limber Pine that was killed due to blister rust.

Burning is scheduled to begin May 10 and continue through June 1. All prescribed burn projects will be conducted in accordance with approved burn plans when favorable weather, smoke dispersal and fuel conditions permit. For More information please contact Bob Buhr at (307) 684-1193 or Gregg Buckalew at (307) 684-1194.



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.
