BLM Pinedale Field Office to Hold Wildlife Annual Planning Meeting


The Bureau of Land management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office (PFO) in coordination with the Pinedale Anticline Project Office (PAPO) will hold a Wildlife Annual Planning Meeting (APM) on Oct. 27 at 8:30 a.m. at the BLM PFO’s Rendezvous Room at 1625 W. Pine St.

As directed in the 2008 Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA) Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) Record of Decision (ROD), an APM is scheduled each year encompassing a wide range of PAPA topics. However, this Wildlife APM has been established separately to coincide more closely with the availability of wildlife data and to allow for a deeper and more efficient discussion of wildlife issues. The Sept. 4 Mule Deer Monitoring Annual Report for the PAPA is available on the JIO/PAPO website at http://www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo/papo/index.htm and will be discussed at the meeting.

The meeting is open to the public and will include the Wyoming Co-op Review recommendations, the revised Adaptive Management policy, and contractor presentations of the 2010 PAPA wildlife monitoring results.

More information is available at www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo or contact John MacDonald, Acting JIO-PAPO Project Coordinator, at 307-367-5386.



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.
