BLM Rawlins Field Office Cancels National Public Lands Day Event


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rawlins Field Office (RFO) has cancelled its National Public Lands Day event scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 27 at the historic JO Ranch.

“The Rawlins Field Office will continue to work on the JO Ranch so that the public can eventually enjoy the site but current livestock usage is not compatible with a volunteer work crew,” stated Associate Field Manager Becky Spurgin.

For more information, please contact Supervisory Archaeologist Bonni Bruce at 307-328-4287 or bbruce@blm.gov.



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.
