Public Land Order.


This order revokes the withdrawal created by a Secretarial Order insofar as it affects the remaining 100 acres of land in the Gallatin National Forest reserved for use by the United States Forest Service for the Mill Ranger Station.

The 1908 Secretarial Order originally withdrew 160 acres within the Gallatin National Forest for use as administrative sites. In 1916, the Secretarial Order was partially revoked, leaving the remaining 100 acres that are the subject of this revocation. The site was never developed and the United States Forest Service has identified it for disposal. The land is temporarily segregated from the United States mining laws by a pending land exchange proposal.


By virtue of the authority vested in the Secretary of the Interior by Section 204 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, 43 U.S.C. 1714, it is ordered as follows:

1. The withdrawal created by the Secretarial Order dated October 13, 1908, which withdrew public land for use by the Forest Service as administrative sites, is hereby revoked in its entirety as to the following described land:

Gallatin National Forest

Principal Meridian, Montana

T. 8 S., R. 7 E.,

Sec. 32, E1/2SW1/4 and W1/2NW1/4SE1/4.

The area described contains 100 acres in Park County.

2. At 9 a.m. on July 13, 2016, the land described in Paragraph 1 is opened to such forms of disposition as may be made of National Forest System land, subject to valid existing rights, the provisions of existing withdrawals, other segregations of record, and the requirements of applicable law.
