BLM Makes Changes to
New Rattlesnake Mountain Firewood Permits


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cody Field Office announced today that all new permits issued for the collection of firewood on public land on Rattlesnake Mountain will expire Oct. 31.

In years past, firewood collection on Rattlesnake Mountain was permitted through Dec. 31. This earlier ending date was implemented to reduce resource impacts and conflicts with private landowners.

Previously issued firewood permits that expire Dec. 31 will be honored.

For more information, contact the Cody Field Office at 307-578-5900. To buy a firewood permit, stop by the office at 1002 Blackburn Street in Cody.



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.
