Comments sought on plan for weeds

Commissioners hope to conduct town-hall meeting by telephone

The Bureau of Land Management crafted a noxious and invasive weeds management plan for 568,000 acres managed under the Glenwood Springs office and is seeking public comment.

The Environmental Assessment and Weed Management Plan details early detection and rapid response to the infestations of more than 30 types of noxious weeds found in the area. The office wants comments be submitted by March 25.

Land managers deal with weed flare-ups in a more reactionary manner through manual, chemical and biological controls. But the office has seen an increase in the number of infestations, which reduce the quality of wildlife habitat and livestock forage.

The plan is available for review at the Glenwood Springs office or at blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/gsfo.html.

Comments can be mailed to the office, 50629 U.S. Highway 6&24, Glenwood Springs 81601 or e-mailed to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
