BLM Cody Releases EA for McCullough Peaks Special Recreation Permits

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cody Field Office announces the availability of an environmental assessment (EA) which analyzes special recreation permit (SRP) requests for interpretive tours and photography workshops in the McCullough Peaks area east of Cody.

SRPs are issued as a way to provide quality recreational opportunities for the public while protecting resources and other activities on public lands.

The EA has been prepared to analyze the impacts of authorizing the SRPs. It is available for public review and comment by visiting the BLM website at
