The Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI) Executive Committee (EC) will hold its quarterly meeting beginning at 8 a.m. on Jan. 22, 2014 at the Bureau of Land Management Wyoming State Office, 5353 Yellowstone Rd., in Cheyenne, Wyo.

Topics of discussion will include the final memorandum of understanding, approval of the 2013 Annual Report, agency budgets, Ruby Pipeline projects and budget, easements, coordination team updates, Science Workshop planning and a presentation on the US Fish and Wildlife Services’ “Candidate Conservation Agreements with Assurances” program.

The public is invited to attend the WLCI EC meeting to learn more about the collaborative efforts of federal, state, county and local agencies to address wildlife, riparian and habitat issues in landscape conservation throughout southern Wyoming. The EC welcomes public comments at designated times.

A complete agenda is available at www.wlci.gov/calendar/month/2014-01.



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.
