Notice of Proposed Withdrawal Extension and Opportunity for Public Meeting; Wyoming
The Department of the Interior proposes to extend the duration of Public Land Order (PLO) No. 6665 for an additional 20-year term. PLO No. 6665 withdrew 180 acres of public lands in Big Horn County, Wyoming from settlement, sale, location, or entry under the general land laws, including the United States mining laws to protect the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Britton Springs Administrative Site and Crooked Creek Natural Area. This notice also gives an opportunity to comment on the proposed action and to request a public meeting. The lands have been and will remain open to mineral leasing.
Notice of Proposed Withdrawal and Transfer of Jurisdiction; Wisconsin
The Bureau of Land Management has received a petition/ application from the United States Fish and Wildlife Service requesting that the Secretary of the Interior withdraw for a 50-year term 328.70 acres of public land from surface entry, and transfer administrative jurisdiction to the Secretary of the Interior, acting through the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, to protect and manage migratory bird and threatened and endangered species habitat. The land is located within the exterior boundaries of the Green Bay Islands National Wildlife Refuge System and was reserved for lighthouse purposes by Executive Orders dated December 11, 1848, and May 28, 1858. These orders will not be disturbed by the proposed withdrawal. This land presently is under the administrative jurisdiction of the United States Coast Guard, which recognizes that wildlife refuge management will make better use of the land than its current outdated use for lighthouse purposes. This notice provides an opportunity to comment on the proposed withdrawal and to request a public meeting.
