BLM Issues Proposed Decisions for Green Mountain Common Allotment

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Lander Field Office has issued proposed decisions to grazing permittees of the Green Mountain Common Allotment (GMCA) based on the analysis of alternatives in a new environmental assessment (EA). The decisions are the result of extensive consultation and coordination between the BLM, GMCA grazing permittees and interested publics.

The new EA proposes to divide the GMCA into four separate grazing allotments, implement deferred grazing systems specific to each new allotment, reduce animal unit months (AUMs) to levels that are more appropriate for the lands within the allotment, implement forage use standards, and authorize new, carefully designed range improvement projects.

"This plan will guide the BLM and the GMCA permittees toward making significant progress in meeting land health standards," said acting Lander Field Manager Rubel Vigil, Jr.

The EA and proposed decision letters are available at:

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.
