The State of Wyoming, State Parks and Cultural Resources wants to purchase the 10 acres of public land which includes an abandoned railroad fill across Willow Creek. They intend to use the land and railroad fill in a flood protection plan to protect their investment in the restored historic structures in the South Pass City State Historic Site.

The publication of this Notice of Realty Action in the Federal Register shall segregate the above public lands from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws. Any subsequent application shall not be accepted, shall not be considered as Start Printed Page 57616filed and shall be returned to the applicant. The segregative effect of this Notice will terminate upon issuance of a conveyance document, 270 days from the date of publication of this Notice, or when a cancellation Notice is published, whichever occurs first.
