Increased Drilling on Pawnee National Grassland Studied

Susan Moore, TSM

The U.S. Forest Service will soon be studying the potential environmental impacts of increased oil and gas exploration and drilling on the Pawnee National Grassland. Portions of the grassland already are open to drilling. According to the Greeley Tribune, the Forest Service will be studying the feasibility of increased drilling, based on increased interest in the area and new drilling technologies that produce less surface damage. Public comment will be taken for the next 45 days on the environmental impact of oil and gas drilling on the Pawnee National Grassland.

A ribbon-cutting for the newly reconstructed Pawnee Buttes trailhead on the Pawnee National Grassland will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 20th. About $250,000 went to reroute the trail, build a new parking area, and add picnic tables, shelters, restrooms and information. Many partners helped the U.S. Forest Service make improvements at the trailhead: the National Scenic Byway Program, the Pawnee Pioneer Trails Scenic and Historic Byway Committee, and Cedar Creek Wind Energy, LLC.
