RAWLINS, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rawlins Field Office will partner with Carbon County Weed and Pest, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, local landowners and the U.S. Forest Service to apply weed treatments in the Upper North Platte Valley, Pennock Mountain, Ferris Mountain and Seminoe Mountain areas in the next few weeks.
The groups share a commitment to control expanding populations of noxious and invasive weeds, including cheatgrass and downy brome. The treatments will also improve habitat for wildlife and livestock grazing. This partnership is vital to the BLM’s mission of keeping public landscapes healthy and productive for the benefit of wildlife, traditional land uses like grazing and other resources and uses.
