BLM Worland Releases Decision on Grazing Permit Renewal


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office announces the availability of a decision record (DR) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for the Little Lost Creek grazing permit renewal environmental assessment (EA).

An EA was prepared to address grazing management on Little Lost Creek Allotment in order to promote healthy, sustainable rangeland ecosystems and to meet/continue to meet rangeland health standards. The allotment is located approximately 50 miles south of Ten Sleep, Wyo., and encompasses approximately 1,096 acres, of which 116 acres are public land.

The protest and appeal period runs from June 23 through July 7. The EA, DR, FONSI and instructions for protesting this proposed decision are available by visiting the BLM website at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/documents/wfo/littlelost.html.

For more information, please contact Mike Peck or Mike Tietmeyer at 307-347-5100.



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.
