Bridger Mountain area grazing needs comments
Jul 15, 2012 - From staff reports
The Bureau of Land Management's Lander Field Office is seeking in input on its recently completed draft standards assessment for grazing allotments in the Bridger Mountain area between Shoshoni and Thermopolis and east to Natrona County.
The BLM stated the goal of the assessment is to determine whether the grazing allotments comply with regulations for Wyoming Standards for Healthy Rangelands.
The draft assessment describes resource conditions for more than 73,000 acres of public land within 39 BLM grazing allotments. The standards address the health, productivity and sustainability of public rangelands.
The BLM is seeking any additional information regarding rangeland health in the Bridger Mountain area. The draft assessment is available for review at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Lander/range.html.
Input should be submitted by Aug. 13 and may be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include "Bridger Mountain Assessment" in the subject line.
Comments may also be mailed to Bureau of Land Management, Lander Field Office, Attn: Judi Mott, 1335 Main St., Lander, WY 82520.
