Logging activity starts south of Parshall

KREMMLING ­— Hunters and other public land users could encounter logging activity and increased heavy truck traffic in the coming weeks on Bureau of Land Management-administered lands about 10 miles south of Parshall. Loggers will be clearing beetle-killed lodgepole pine from BLM lands near Morgan Creek and Mule Creek off of Grand County Road 3, and Cow Creek near Grand County Road 34. All are in Big Game Management Unit 28.

Work is expected to begin at Mule Creek within the next several weeks, and at Cow and Morgan Creeks this spring. The operations could last about two years.

“We appreciate the public’s patience during these operations,” said Kremmling Field Manager Stephanie Odell. “The beetle-killed trees are being removed to increase public safety, improve forest health and wildlife habitat, and reduce fire danger.”

For more information, contact the BLM Kremmling Field Office, (970) 724-3000. A map of the area being logged is available on http://www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/kfo.html.
