BLM Hosts Women's History Reading Group


The Wyoming Humanities Council is sponsoring a Women's History Month reading group hosted by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wyoming State Office. The group will meet March 28, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the BLM Wyoming State Office, 5343 Yellowstone Road in the first floor conference room.

The group will read Mildred Walker's Winter Wheat, a coming-of-age novel set in Montana's dryland wheat country during the 1940's. The program is free and open to the public. For more information or to obtain a copy of Winter Wheat for use during the program, contact Delissa Minnick at (307) 775-6260.



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.
