Buffalo Field Office Announces June Events


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Buffalo Field Office announces the June 2012 summer schedule of events. All events are free and open to all ages.

“We are pleased to offer a variety of events this June for the public.” said Allison Barnes, outdoor recreation planner.

  • June 2nd – National Trails Day – Bird Watching Hike at Mosier Gulch
    Saturday, June 2, 8 a.m. at Mosier Gulch Picnic Area
    Join a BLM wildlife biologist and explore hiking and bird watching opportunities on the new Clear Creek Trail Extension at Mosier Gulch. The hike will begin at 8 a.m. from the picnic area.
  • June 5 – Transit of Venus Viewing
    Tuesday, June 5, 6 to 8 p.m. at Buffalo City Park (near the locomotive)
    A transit of Venus occurs when Venus passes directly between the sun and earth. This alignment is rare, coming in pairs that are eight years apart but separated by over a century. The next transit will not occur until 2112. Telescopes with solar filters will be available for public viewing.
  • June 9 – National Get Outdoors Day - Youth Fishing Expo at the Mountain Plains Heritage Park Pond
    Saturday, June 9, 9 to 11 a.m. at Buffalo Wetlands Pond at the Mountain Plains Heritage Park (Stockyard Road)
    We’ll have fishing poles, tips and techniques to reel in the big catch. Please bring a valid license for persons over the age of 14.
  • StoryWalkTM
    During the entire month of June, walking trails at Mosier Gulch Picnic Area (Buffalo) and the Welch Ranch (Sheridan) will feature children’s books about wildlife. Bring your family and walk from page to page- it’s a great way to combine nature and reading!

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.
