The Bureau of Land Management has issued a press release announcing the publication of its preliminary environmental assessment (EA) for travel management planning within the 1.5-million acre White River Field Office in northwestern Colorado for public review and comment.
The EA includes four alternatives designating which areas would be open to cross-country motorized and mechanized use, which would be limited to designated routes, and which would be closed to motorized and mechanized vehicles.
The BLM will host a public open house meeting to provide information and take written comments on the preliminary EA on August 15th, from 5-7 p.m., at the Public Library, 490 Main St, Meeker, CO 81641.

Take the ARRA Quiz to test your knowledge! Then, share it with friends and family to test their familiarity with the Recreational Trails Program, too.
Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA) was formed to ensure that Americans are not arbitrarily denied the right to responsibly experience and enjoy the public lands that belong to the citizens of the United States. The members of ARRA, which include horseback riders, personal watercraft users, off-highway vehicle and snowmobile riders, and vacationing families, have joined together to provide input on decisions regarding land use designation, recreation opportunities, and preservation. Its members seek responsible consideration of competing activities, which are based on sound environmental principles.
