WYOMING - Rawlins BLM Seeks Public Comment on Rogers Canyon Travel Management

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rawlins Field Office (RFO) is seeking additional public comment on travel management planning as part of the proposed Rogers Canyon Resource Protection, Public Access and Travel Management Plan Environmental Assessment (EA). The 640-acre Rogers Canyon area is located approximately eight miles northwest of Laramie, Wyoming, in Albany County.

The EA will incorporate motorized and non-motorized recreational access to the planning area while protecting sensitive resources. Additional EA information, including a map of existing routes, may be found at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/documents/rfo/rogers_canyon.html. Additional information on BLM travel management planning may be found at www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/Recreation/recreation_national/travel_management.html.

The BLM will consider public comments in formulating EA alternatives for specific route designations and authorized uses. Comments on travel management are most useful when they address specific routes, cite additional relevant issues, and/or determine the extent of those issues.

To be considered in this EA, written substantive comments must be received by July 31 and may be emailed to BLM_WY_Rogers_Canyon@blm.gov with "Rogers Canyon Travel Comment" in the subject line; faxed to 307-328-4373; or mailed or delivered to the BLM Rawlins Field Office, Attn: Amanda Jones, P.O. Box 2407, 1300 N. Third St., Rawlins WY 82301.

Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, be advised that your entire comment - including your personal identifying information - may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold from public review your personal identifying information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

For more information, please call Amanda Jones at 307-328-4205.

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
