UW Conservation Corp Students Work with BLM on Mallo Trail

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Newcastle Field Office and the Wyoming Conservation Corps (WCC) are teaming up this month to reconstruct the Mallo Trail near Newcastle, Wyo. The project will run from June 8 to June 17.

The Mallo Trail was cooperatively established as a multi-use trail by the BLM, United States Forest Service, Weston County, and the State of Wyoming. The original trail consisted of 2.8 miles on BLM and .75 miles on Weston County surface. The reconstruction will consist of 2.21 miles of trail construction on BLM surface and installation of carsonite posts along the trail.

“This is a great opportunity for the WCC and BLM to work together on improving a well- used trail in Newcastle. This project will benefit the entire community,” noted Newcastle Field Manager Vi Hillman.

Wyoming Conservation Corps provides Wyoming’s young adults first-hand experience dealing with Wyoming’s complex landscape, providing them with real world skills and a deeper appreciation for the state’s environmental challenges and riches.

BLM will be providing project oversight and management of the project. For more information contact Nathaniel West at (307) 746-6600.

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.
