BLM Pinedale Field Office to Hold Wildlife Annual Planning Meeting


The Bureau of Land management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office (PFO), in coordination with the Pinedale Anticline Project Office (PAPO), will hold a Wildlife Annual Planning Meeting (APM) on Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 8:30 a.m. in the PFO Rendezvous Room at 1625 W. Pine St.

As directed in the 2008 Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA) Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) Record of Decision (ROD), an APM for PAPA development is to be held annually. An additional APM for wildlife was established in 2010 to coincide more closely with the availability of wildlife data and to allow for a deeper and more efficient discussion of wildlife issues.

Topics for the APM will include wildlife monitoring results, an update on SEIS ROD Matrix species, a summary of operator reclamation activities, a Sublette Mule Deer habitat assessment and discussions on well pad spacing and expansion as well as adaptive management.

The meeting is open to the public and there will be an opportunity for public comment.

Additional information is available at www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo, http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Pinedale/anticline.html or contact PAPO Project Coordinator Eric Decker at 307-367-5386 or egdecker@blm.gov.



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.
