BLM proposes 25-acre land sale to Bairoil
CHEYENNE, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management is accepting comments through Dec. 5, 2022, on the proposed sale of 24.79 acres of BLM-administered public land to the Town of Bairoil in Fremont County, Wyoming.
The Town of Bairoil plans to use the land to expand recreational opportunities for the community, particularly for recreational shooting.

The proposed conveyance is in conformance with the BLM Approved Lander Resource Management Plan. The BLM’s analysis of the proposed conveyance can be reviewed at eplanning.blm.gov/eplanning-ui/project/121148/510.
