Attention Kids: Help Decorate the Trails Center's Christmas Tree

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) is looking for ornaments to decorate its Christmas tree.

Children are encouraged to bring ornaments to the NHTIC. Adult participants accompanying children will receive one free admission for each ornament. Children, 15 and younger, receive free admission year round.

The Christmas tree decorating will begin Nov. 26, 2010, and will last through Dec. 23. The NHTIC is closed Nov. 25, for Thanksgiving. “Our Christmas tree is over 10 feet tall and has a lot of bare branches,” said NHTIC Interpreter Alex Rose. “This a community effort to decorate our tree.”

For more information, contact Alex Rose at the NHTIC, (307) 261-7700.

The NHTIC is a part of the BLM's National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS). The areas of the NLCS are specifically designed to conserve, protect and restore the exceptional scientific, natural, cultural, ecological, historical, and recreation values of these treasured landscapes.

The NHTIC is a public-private partnership between the BLM and the National Historic Trails Center Foundation. The facility is located at 1501 N. Poplar Street, Casper, Wyo. The Center is currently operating on winter hours, and is open Tuesday - Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30. p.m.

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.
