PINEDALE, Wyo. — A federal advisory group working on natural gas development in the lucrative Pinedale Anticline gas field in southwest Wyoming is seeking new members, according to Bureau of Land Management officials.
The experimental, nine-member adaptive management team known as the Pinedale Anticline Working Group is seeking nominations for nine positions, BLM spokeswoman Shelley Gregory said.
The PAWG was established by the BLM in 2002 by a federal advisory group charter signed by the Secretary of the Interior. The group oversees seven resource-specific task groups that focus on water, air, wildlife and socioeconomic issues, among others.
PAWG members are appointed to serve two-year terms.
Gregory said nominations must be submitted to the BLM's Pinedale field office by Nov. 29. Nominations can be mailed or hand-delivered to the agency office.
