Casper Mountain Rehab Focus of ROTC-BLM Public Lands Day

Karen Snyder, K2 Radio

Areas of Casper Mountain burned in the Sheep Herder Hill Fire will get some rehabilitation this Saturday.

Bureau of Land Management Forester, Cindy Allen, says its a National Public Lands Day event and a joint effort with Natrona County High School ROTC and the public.

She says much of the work will happen on the south side of Casper Mountain above the Clear Fork of Muddy Creek where they’ll plant over 4000 ponderosa pine seedlings along with creating sediment traps to slow erosion.

“We are going to build some sediment traps from the burned trees to capture some of the soils that are washing and eroding portions of the mountain.”

The project, hosted by the BLM is open to the public, Saturday, November 3rd, 8am to 4:30pm.

If you’d like to join them, meet at the BLM Field Office, 2987 Prospector Drive, Casper, at 8am before departure for the project site.

Directions to the work site are:
Take Circle Drive south of Casper over Casper Mountain to the intersection of the Muddy Mt. road and “Texaco” Road.  Turn East on Texaco Road and travel ~2.66 miles to the work site located in SWSE sec. 26, T 32 N, R 79 W.
