BLM Kemmerer Field Office Discusses
Slate Creek Allotment Management Plan on KMER Radio


Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kemmerer Field Office (KFO) rangeland management specialist, Spencer Allred, will discuss the upcoming Slate Creek Allotment Management Plan (AMP) on Kemmerer, Wyo.’s KMER 950 AM radio at 5:05 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6.

Allred will review the location of the Slate Creek area, the qualities that make it special, the AMP planning process and its intent, the importance of and opportunities for public involvement, and where to find more information.

Currently, there are 10 ranchers who use the 260,000 acre Slate Creek allotment northeast of Kemmerer, Wyo., for cattle and sheep grazing from April through November of each year. The AMP will determine the how, when and where of future livestock use.

The Slate Creek area encompasses oil and gas development in the south and sage-grouse habitat in the north as well as big game winter range. Hunting is a popular pursuit throughout due to the large, solid block of unfenced public land. Important cultural and historic resources are also present.
