BLM Kemmerer Seeks Public Comment on Special Recreation Permit


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kemmerer Field Office (KFO) is seeking public comment on a proposed Special Recreation Permit (SRP) within the Raymond Mountain Wilderness Study Area (WSA).

The SRP applicant proposes to establish a base camp within the Raymond Mountain WSA and guide three groups of two to four persons during the September to November hunting season. The base camp will consist of two wall tents, two privy holes, a fire pit and a temporary corral. All disturbances will be confined to a previously used camp site.

An environmental assessment (EA) will be prepared by the BLM to analyze the effects of this proposed SRP. Public comment is being sought to help identify potential issues, concerns, ideas and alternatives to be addressed in the EA. Mail or deliver written comments by May 21 to the KFO, 312 Highway 189 N., Kemmerer, WY 83101 or email to wmierzej@blm.gov with “WSA Permit” in the subject line.

Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment – including your personal identifying information – may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

For more information, please contact Wally Mierzejewski, KFO outdoor recreation planner, at 307-828-4508.
