Dunes Recreational Site, Wyoming
AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
ACTION: Proposed Supplementary Rules.
SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing supplementary
rules for the Killpecker Sand Dunes Recreational Site located within
the Greater Sand Dunes Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC)
Eastern Portion managed by the Rock Springs Field Office (RSFO) in Rock
Springs, Wyoming. This action is necessary for the public health and
safety of visitors in order to provide high quality and unique off-
highway vehicle (OHV) activities in the open play sand dunes area. The
proposed supplementary rules are intended to allow the BLM to more
effectively manage a safe environment for OHV recreation by providing
better visual identification of OHVs, implementing a speed limit, and
prohibiting the possession and use of glass containers in the OHV

proposed supplementary rules until February 9, 2015
