BLM Hosts Slate Creek Allotment Management Plan Meeting


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will hold a public meeting on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 10 a.m. for the Slate Creek Allotment Management Plan (AMP) at the Kemmerer Field Office at 312 Hwy. 189 N., Kemmerer, Wyo.

The 260,000 acre Slate Creek allotment northeast of Kemmerer is currently used by 10 ranchers for cattle and sheep grazing from April through November of each year. The BLM, grazing permittees and other stakeholders will discuss issues previously identified through public scoping as well as potential alternatives and solutions.

The AMP will eventually determine the how, when and where of future livestock use balanced with various resource uses such as oil and gas development, wildlife habitat, hunting and other outdoor activities. The public is invited to attend and share their ideas on how this area should be managed.

For more information, please contact KFO Rangeland Management Specialist Spencer Allred at 307-828-4526.



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.
