RAWLINS, Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management plans to burn about 9,000 acres of Seminoe Mountain over the next 10 years.
BLM rangeland management specialist Mike Murry says the fire treatments are aimed at rejuvenating vegetation for wildlife, including bighorn sheep.
Murry tells the Rawlins Daily Times that the burning will be spaced years apart with the first one possibly this spring.
The project area encompasses the Seminoe Mountains to the North Platte River and includes federal, state and private land, as well as hunting areas and three grazing allotments.
