What is the Carbon County Wyoming Public Lands Initiative?

The Carbon County Commission has initiated a formal collaborative process to consider the future management of its Bureau of Land Management wilderness study areas. It is looking for local citizen involvement to help it craft a proposal that will be forwarded to Congress.

Click here for a copy of the application for the Carbon County advisory group. The application deadline is June 1, 2016. To read about the process as it’s playing out elsewhere in the state, check out our blog post about the Wyoming Public Lands Initiative in Fremont County.

What areas will be considered?

The Commission will focus on the following areas:

  • Ferris Mountains
  • Encampment River Canyon
  • Bennett Mountain
  • Prospect Mountain
  • And possibly other county public lands

Please join us at an informational meeting to learn more about this process and how you can participate and share your local knowledge and perspectives!
