Muddy Mountain NPLD Event Postponed


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Casper Field Office has postponed the National Public Lands Day (NPLD) event scheduled Sept. 29 on Muddy Mountain.

According to Casper Field Office Manager Joe Meyer, “We are temporarily looking at changing the project in response to the Sheep Herder Hill Fire. We will notify the public when we schedule the next event.”

NPLD is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. In 2011, 170,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, removed trash and invasive plants, planted trees, and restored our water resources.



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.
