BLM Holds Public Meetings for Lander Draft RMP


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will host five public meetings during the 90-day comment period on the Lander Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

Public involvement is an essential and required part of the RMP revision process. The meetings will provide an opportunity for interested individuals to ask questions, provide input on the draft plan, and help ensure that the BLM is providing a well-balanced plan for the management of public lands in the Lander Field Office area.

The BLM-hosted public meetings will be held in Shoshoni, Lander, Dubois, Riverton and Jeffrey City.

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.
