RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — Federal and state officials held a closed meeting recently with private landowners about the Chokecherry Sierra Madre wind farm project south of Rawlins.

Bureau of Land Management archaeologist Pat Walker says the meeting last week in Rawlins was not open to the public in order to protect the location of archaeological sites on private land.

Walker tells the Rawlins Daily Times (http://bit.ly/sYwZ0i) that the sites could be subject to being vandalized or looted if their locations were revealed.

State historical preservation officer Mary Hopkins says private landowners didn’t want the locations revealed where historical trails, such as the Oregon Trail, cross their properties.
