BLM Pinedale installs Lander Road interpretive signs
by Bureau of Land Management
September 13, 2012
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office has installed four new interpretive signs for the Lander Road 21 miles south of Pinedale, Wyoming at the Lander Road historical site (mile marker 78.5) on Highway 191.
The Lander Road panels discuss the westward expansion of the U.S., the travails of emigrants along the way, and the present day context for the emigrant road.
The interpretive signs are the result of a cooperative mitigation effort for impacts to the portion of the 256-mile Lander Road, a branch of the California National Historic Trail, traversing the Pinedale Anticline natural gas field. The BLM, Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the Sublette County Historical Society, SWEPI L.P., and Ultra Resources Inc., in coordination with the Alliance for Historic Wyoming, the Oregon-California Trails Association, the Lander Trail Foundation, and the National Park Service developed, designed and funded the signs.
