BLM Rawlins to Host Two Open Houses for Upper North Platte River Management

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rawlins Field Office will host two open houses in March to discuss the Upper North Platte River Management Plan.

The meetings are scheduled for March 4, 2010 at the Rawlins Field Office, 1300 North Third St., Rawlins, Wyo. from 2 to 6 p.m., and on March 9, 2010 at the Platte Valley Community Center in Saratoga, 210 Elm St., Saratoga, Wyo. from 2 to 6 p.m.

The BLM will provide information on public use, current conditions of recreation sites and feedback from river users collected throughout the summer of 2009.

All interested parties are encouraged to attend one or both open houses to provide BLM with their concerns and management goals for the recreational opportunities within the Upper North Platte River.

For further information, contact BLM Outdoor Recreation Specialist Brian R. Smith at the Rawlins Field Office, 307-328-4200.

The BLM manages more land - 253 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
