BLM and OHV Alliance Plan Torchlight Cleanup Day


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office and the Northwest Wyoming Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) Alliance will team up on Saturday, June 23, for a cleanup day at the Torchlight area, east of Basin and Greybull. The community is encouraged to attend.

Volunteers can meet at 8:00 a.m. at either one of two locations: the base of Torchlight Hill on the Torchlight Road or 1.5 miles south of Highway 14 on Road 28 (the Basin Gardens Road). Bring gloves, hat, sunscreen and plenty of water, and wear your work clothes and boots or sturdy shoes. The cleanup will be followed by an OHV ride around the area.

The BLM and the Northwest Wyoming OHV Alliance recently held a successful cleanup day at the Red Lake area near Cody. This will be the 3rd cleanup day in the Torchlight area in the past five years.

For more information, contact BLM Law Enforcement Ranger Aaron Kania in the Worland Field Office at 307-347-5100 or Dana Sander of the Northwest Wyoming OHV Alliance at 307-250-2018.



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.
