BLM Kemmerer Asks Public to Avoid Reclamation Areas


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kemmerer Field Office (KFO) is asking the public to avoid sensitive reclamation areas in the Moxa Arch oil and gas field and other sites throughout the KFO area.

Most of these areas are delineated and have signs indicating their reclamation status. It is vital that they remain free of disturbances from vehicles and other activities to allow time for vegetation to re-establish.

Successful reclamation restores habitat for big game animals and other wildlife, including Greater Sage-grouse, and deters invasive plant species. The recovery of these areas can also contribute to a more positive experience for outdoor enthusiasts.

For more information, please contact Deej Brown at 307-828-4506.



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.
