BLM Hosts Little Mountain Listening Session


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cody Field Office will host a listening session on Thursday, April 7, from 5-7 p.m. at the Community Center in Lovell, Wyo., to discuss travel management in the Little Mountain area.

The listening session will provide an opportunity for the public and the BLM to discuss implementation of the Little Mountain Travel Management Plan (TMP) since the release of the amended environmental assessment in August 2010. Specific topics to be discussed include signage, TMP enforcement and possible partnerships.

Little Mountain TMP information and a map of the area are available online at: www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/documents/cyfo/littlemountain.html. In addition, the public can find maps and information at key access points in the Little Mountain area.

The Little Mountain area consists of 69,044 acres of BLM-administered public land located in Big Horn County, north of U.S. Highway Alternate 14, south of the Montana state line, east of the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, and west of the Bighorn National Forest.

For more information, please contact BLM Outdoor Recreation Planner Shirley Bye-Jech at 307-578-5900.



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.
