BLM to Conduct Prescribed Burn South of Terry

The Bureau of Land Management will be conducting a prescribed burn about seven miles south of Terry as part of a Fort Keogh range study beginning this week and continuing until all of the identified area has been treated.

Approximately five acres has been scheduled for burning --as weather permits-- in order to prepare the site for the successful establishment of native grass species. The burning will be initiated sometime between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. based on daily weather conditions.

For more information call the BLM Miles City Interagency Dispatch Center at (406)233-2900.

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 sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
