BLM Rawlins Issues Rogers Canyon Resource Protection, Public Access and Travel Management Plan Decision


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rawlins Field Office has issued the finding of no significant impact (FONSI) and decision record (DR) for the Rogers Canyon Resource Protection, Public Access and Travel Management Plan.

In response to public concerns regarding the degradation of the 640-acre recreation area, the BLM will provide a preferred area for safer target shooting, construct three vehicle parking areas, deter illegal dumping with 1.15 miles of fence along the south side of County Road 17, limit off-highway vehicles to a 65-inch or less width, close eight extraneous routes with engineering, erosion or routing problems and offer more education about and enforcement of existing rules and policies.

The environmental assessment, FONSI and DR are available at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/documents/rfo/rogers_canyon.html or the Rawlins Field Office, 1300 N. Third St., Rawlins, Wyo.

For more information, please contact Amanda Strand at 307-328-4205.



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.
