Reporter's Notes

Scab Creek

The Pinedale Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management is asking the public to participate in the Scab Creek and Trailhead Redevelopment Project.

"We have invited everyone to join us at a public open house Tuesday, March 1, from noon until 7 p.m., in our office. The public can learn about the project and view the proposed site plans," said Martin Hudson, outdoor recreation planner for the Pinedale BLM. The Pinedale BLM Field Office is located at 432 Tyler Street.

This open house is not a public meeting and no formal presentation is planned. Site plans and other materials will be displayed to help the public become familiar with the project features.

"We want the public to provide suggestions on how we can improve the plans to better meet public need. The open house will be an opportunity for free flowing dialogue and discussion on the project," Hudson added.

This recreation site planning effort is part of the BLM deferred maintenance program and is intended to address issues related to facility condition, public health, recreation values and safety. "Presently, restrooms, vehicle parking, trailhead staging areas and a campground are inadequate or need relocation to meet existing user demands. This very important access to the Bridger Wilderness also provides substantial area day-use recreation opportunities," Hudson said. The Scab Creek campground and trailhead are located approximately 15 miles east of Boulder.

For more information on the open house, contact Martin Hudson in the Pinedale BLM Office at 307-367-5315.

PAWG meetings set for March 2-3

The PAWG is designed to advise the BLM on the development and implementation of monitoring plans and adaptive management decisions as development of the Pinedale Anticline Natural Gas Field proceeds, for the life of the field.
