Jackson County, North Park: The Rich allotment is 10 miles south of Walden along Hwy 14. The Davis Meadow, Davis Pasture, Brownlee, Mattocks, Vic Riley and Johnson allotments are approximately one mile north of Walden. The North Park allotments cover 6,937 acres.

Grand County, Middle Park: The Spacek J. and Wendt Individual allotments are along the Williams Fork River, south of the Williams Fork Reservoir. The Forster A and B allotments are six miles west of Granby along Hwy 40, and the Little hO allotment is four miles east of Granby. The Middle Park allotments cover 5,209 acres.

“We are seeking comments from the public on such issues as compliance history or other concerns,” Range Management Specialist Cynthia Landing said. “Comments can also help us determine whether these specific permits support Bureau objectives in land management and resource protection and are in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act.”
