BLM to host Wildlife Annual Planning Meeting Oct. 24
by Bureau of Land Management
October 3, 2012
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), in coordination with the Pinedale Anticline Project Office (PAPO), will hold a Wildlife Annual Planning Meeting (APM) on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 8 a.m. in the BLM Pinedale Field Office Rendezvous Room, 1625 W. Pine St., Pinedale, Wyo.
As directed in the 2008 Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA) Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) Record of Decision (ROD), an APM for PAPA development is to be held annually. An additional APM for wildlife was established in 2010 to coincide more closely with the availability of wildlife data and to allow for a deeper and more efficient discussion of wildlife issues.
Topics for this APM will include wildlife monitoring results, an update on SEIS ROD Matrix species, the proposed Sublette and Wyoming Range mule deer habitat projects, and adaptive management. The meeting is open to the public and there will be an opportunity for public comment.
Current wildlife reports are available at www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo. APM information can be found at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Pinedale/anticline/wildlifemtg.html.
