WYOMING - Casper BLM Hosts Scoping Meeting on Bates Hole Travel Management Plan

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The plan will address off-highway vehicle use and the designation of roads and trails within the Bates Hole Travel Management Area located west of Casper and south of Highway 220.

The scoping meeting is a starting point in which the public can identify issues to be addressed in the plan. Issues already identified include damage to vegetation, sensitive soils, important wildlife habitats, minerals, rights-of ways, additional transportation needs, motorized and non-motorized recreational use, and the impacts of off-route motorized use.
