Trails Center and the BLM Casper Field Office Sponsor Bald Eagle Nature Hike


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) and the Casper Field Office is sponsoring a bald eagle nature hike at Casper Mountain on Saturday, Dec. 4, between 2:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Hikers will caravan to the trailhead at the base of Casper Mountain. The hike is approximately 1.5 miles, one way, and is strenuous. At the eagle roost site, a BLM wildlife biologist will present a program on bald eagles. Participants will have the opportunity to view potentially dozens of soaring eagles before sunset.

Hikers must bring appropriate clothing, boots, flash lights, water and snacks. Cameras and binoculars are highly recommended.

The hike is free, but space is limited. For more information, or to make reservations, contact Alex Rose at the NHTIC, (307) 261-7700.

The NHTIC is a part of the BLM's National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS). The areas of the NLCS are specifically designed to conserve, protect and restore the exceptional scientific, natural, cultural, ecological, historical, and recreation values of these treasured landscapes.

The NHTIC is a public-private partnership between the BLM and the National Historic Trails Center Foundation. The facility is located at 1501 N. Poplar Street, Casper, Wyo. The NHTIC is currently operating on winter hours, and is open Tuesday - Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30. p.m.



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.
