BLM Sets Slate Creek Allotment Management Plan Public Meeting


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kemmerer Field Office (KFO) will hold a public meeting to discuss current monitoring for the Slate Creek Allotment Management Plan (AMP) as well as proposals for short and long-term monitoring. The meeting will take place at 1:00 p.m. on February 29 at the KFO, 312 Highway 189 N., in 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. Ongoing public input will shape the AMP to help balance livestock use with other resource uses such as oil and gas development, wildlife habitat and outdoor activities.

For more information, please contact Spencer Allred 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.
