BLM's Existing WSA Recommendations

This document is the 1991 BLM wilderness recommendations for 42 wilderness study areas (WSAs) in the State of Wyoming. These recommendations were developed from the findings of a 15-year wilderness study process by the Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management.

This is an overview of the 1991 BLM Wyoming Statewide Wilderness Study Report.

This report was the culmination of the BLM inventory of public lands in Wyoming in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s as directed by the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976. The inventory phase was the first of three phases of the wilderness review program process: inventory, study and reporting.  This process eventually led to the development of the 1991 BLM Wyoming Statewide Wilderness Study Report.

This final wilderness Environmental Impact Statement considered the suitability or non-suitability of three wilderness study areas (WSAs) in the Buffalo Resource Area for inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System.

This final wilderness study report with Environmental Impact Statement takes into consideration the Scab Creek Wilderness in Sublette County for inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System.

This Lander Final Wilderness Environmental Impact Statement analyzes six wilderness study areas (WSAs) in the Rawlins District to determine the resource impacts that could result from designation or non-designation of those WSAs as wilderness.

This document includes a tour schedule from September of 1991 of Wyoming’s WSAs, as well as facts and maps of the WSAs.
