Trails Center Remains Open during Roof Replacement Project


A maintenance project on the roof of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) will begin on May 19. The NHTIC will remain open during construction which will continue until June 30.

“The roof the NHTIC is more than 13 years old,” noted NHTIC Director, Mike Abel.  “This project is part of our continual efforts to protect the investment of public funds in this BLM facility.”

The public should expect some noise disruption from the installation process during their visits. Construction will take place Monday – Friday, 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., and possibly on the weekend.

For more information call the NHTIC at 307-261-7700.

The NHTIC is a part of the BLM's National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS). The areas of the NLCS are specifically designed to conserve, protect and restore the exceptional scientific, natural, cultural, ecological, historical, and recreation values of these treasured landscapes.

The NHTIC is a public-private partnership between the BLM and the National Historic Trails Center Foundation. The facility is located at 1501 N. Poplar Street, Casper, Wyo. The Center is currently operating on regular hours, and is open Tuesday – Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.



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.
