What is the Sublette County Wyoming Public Lands Initiative?

The Sublette County Commission has initiated a formal collaborative process to consider the future management of its Bureau of Land Management wilderness study areas. The commissioners are looking for local citizen involvement to help craft a proposal for public land legislation that will be forwarded to Congress.

Click here for a copy of the application for the Sublette County advisory group. The application deadline is June 6, 2016. This is a complex process, so please take a look at our Sublette County Wyoming Public Lands Initiative Fact Sheet for more information.

What areas will be considered?

The Wyoming Public Land Initiative focuses first on wilderness study areas (WSAs) but can include other beloved local landscapes. For Sublette County, this means Scab Creek WSA, Shoal Creek WSA, and Lake Mountain WSA will be evaluated but other landscapes that would benefit from public land legislation, including the Upper Green or along the southern Wind Rivers could also be considered.

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!
