BLM Pinedale Hosts Greater Sage-Grouse Public Meeting


The Bureau of Land Management Pinedale Field Office, in coordination with the Pinedale Anticline Project Office, will host a public meeting on Thursday, June 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. at 1625 W. Pine St., Pinedale, Wyo., to present the draft Pinedale Anticline Project Area Greater Sage-Grouse Mitigation Plan.

The plan was developed in response to a drop in the number of active sage-grouse leks in the Duke’s Triangle Complex, a Pinedale Anticline Wildlife Monitoring and Mitigation Matrix trigger that requires a mitigation response. The draft plan is available online at www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo/papo/index.htm or www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Pinedale/anticline/resources/wildlife.html.

Public comment will be sought regarding the plan’s proposed mitigation and implementation at the meeting. Written comments will also be accepted by delivery or mail to Eric Decker, Project Coordinator, 1625 W. Pine St., P.O. Box 768, Pinedale, WY 82941 or by email to egdecker@blm.gov. Comments must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on July 3.

For more information, please contact Eric Decker at 307-367-5386.
