The BLM welcomes public input on evaluation of Lander Resource Management Plan

LANDER, Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management Lander Field Office is seeking public comments as it evaluates the 2014 Lander Resource Management Plan (RMP).  

The public is invited to submit comments on the draft evaluation report. The report assesses the existing Lander RMP to determine whether mitigation measures are satisfactory; whether there have been significant changes in the related plans of other Federal agencies, State or local governments, or Indian tribes; or whether there is new data of significance to the plan.

The BLM is required to regularly monitor and evaluate the decisions, supporting analysis and implementation of existing, approved RMPs. This evaluation is not intended to initiate RMP maintenance actions, amendments or revisions; preparation of compliance documents; additional inventory of public lands or resources in the planning area; or evaluation of Greater Sage-grouse-related decisions and amendments. 

Readers can access the draft evaluation report and the Lander RMP, and submit comments, by visiting the BLM ePlanning site at The deadline to submit comments is August 18, 2021. After comments are reviewed and incorporated into the document, the final evaluation report will be made available. 

For additional information, please contact Sarah Wempen at 307-332-8478,, or Holly Elliott at 307-347-5193,
