CHEYENNE, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management’s decision to extend the public comment deadline for the Rock Springs Resource Management Plan will encourage full public participation in the process. It also will help develop a framework to guide public lands management in southwest Wyoming for the next generation.
“Resource Management Plans guide land management decisions for at least 20 years. It’s imperative that those plans are created carefully — with full participation by all stakeholders — so that they are workable, durable, and ensure the health of those public lands for future generations,” said David Willms, associate vice president for public lands at the National Wildlife Federation. “Thank you to the Bureau of Land Management for allowing extra time for the public to weigh in on this important management plan.”
