BLM Lander Seeks Input on Bridger Mountain Area Allotments


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Lander Field Office has completed a draft standards assessment for grazing allotments in the Bridger Mountain area between Shoshone and Thermopolis and east to Natrona County. The goal of the assessment will determine whether or not these grazing allotments are in compliance with the Wyoming Standards for Healthy Rangelands.

The draft assessment describes resource conditions for more than 73,000 acres of public land within 39 BLM grazing allotments. The standards to be met address the health, productivity and sustainability of public rangelands.

The BLM is seeking any additional information regarding rangeland health in the Bridger Mountain area. The draft assessment is available for review at: www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Lander/range.html.

Input should be submitted by August 13, 2012, and may be emailed to lander_wymail@blm.gov; please include "Bridger Mountain Assessment" in the subject line. Comments may also be mailed to Bureau of Land Management, Lander Field Office, Attn: Judi Mott, 1335 Main Street, Lander, WY 82520.

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.
