BLM Seeks Comments at Mule Creek Public Meeting

BLM seeks comments on proposed timber sale and prescribed fire project

Fire officials with the Bureau of Land Management’s Kremmling Field Office will host a public meeting December 12, 2012 at 5:30 p.m. at the Aspen Canyon Ranch to gather comments and provide information on the proposed Mule Creek hazardous fuel reduction project. The proposed project is on BLM land on Grand County Road 3 and 34.

The majority of the project is timber salvage and sales with some prescribed burning and pile burning. The objective of the project is to remove dead lodgepole pine to reduce the chance of large, intense burning wildland fires and provide a safer environment for the public. The project is about 1,500 acres.

An Environmental Assessment is being prepared and comments gathered at this meeting are part of the scoping process. Kevin Thompson, BLM Fire Management Specialist, will collect contact information and comments and answer questions regarding the hazardous fuel reduction project. If you’re unable to attend and would like to comment please contact Kevin at 970-724-3033 or email .

Aspen Canyon Ranch is 13 miles south of Parshall at 13206 Grand County Road 3.
