The area described contains 16,077.59 acres, more or less, in Washakie and Big Horn Counties, Wyoming.

The law authorizing the transfer of the land specifies that acreage may be added to or subtracted from the land to be conveyed to satisfy any mitigation requirements resulting from the NEPA analysis. The law provides that proceeds from the sale are to be used “for acquisition of land and interests in land in the Worland District of the Bureau of Land Management that will benefit public recreation, public access, fish and wildlife habitat, or cultural resources.”

On publication in the Federal Register the above-described land will be segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws. Until completion of the sale, the BLM is no longer accepting land use applications affecting the identified public land, except applications for the amendment of previously-filed right-of-way applications or existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15. The segregative effect will terminate upon issuance of a patent or publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or 2 years after the date of publication in the Federal Register unless extended by the BLM State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the termination date.

Public Comments: Interested parties and the general public may submit in writing any comments concerning the land being conveyed by direct sale, including notification of any encumbrances or other claims relating to the identified land, to Field Manager, BLM Worland Field Office, at the above address. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made public at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
