I 2 I The Lovell Chronicle I April 8, 2010 www. LovellCh ronicle,com 1 ! The Bureau of Land Management Cody Field Office will host a workshop Thursday, April 15, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Lovell Com- munity Center to discuss implementation of the Lit- tle Mountain Travel Man- agement Plan. Recreational use in the Little Mountain area near Lovell has increased over the past few years, making the designation of off-high- way vehicle (OHV) routes critical to effectively man- aging the area for a wide variety of activities includ- ing horseback riding, hik- ing, mountain biking, hunt- ing, fishing, caving and sightseeing, according to a BLM press release. A Travel Management Plan for the Little Moun- tain area was developed by the Cody Field Office in 2005 and 2006. Public input was sought from 2004 to 2006 through public meet- ings and comment periods, according to the release. The workshop will pro- vide an opportunity for the public and the BLM to dis- cuss how and why the Little Mountain Travel Manage- ment Plan will be imple- mented. The initial phase of implementation has been characterized by public ed- ucation, and information is available at key access points throughout the Little Mountain area. The Little Mountain Travel Manage- ment Map can be download- ed at http://www.blm.gov/ wy/st/en/field_office s/Cody/ rec.html. For the majority of the Little Mountain area, OHVs are limited to des- ignated roads and trails. New signs and markers identify which routes are open to vehicle use, which routes are closed, and which routes are too nar- row for full-sized vehicles to use and are therefore suitable for ATV use only. Cottonwood Creek Trail, Pete's Canyon Trail, and the old roadbed beyond the Five Springs Falls Camp- ground are closed to motor- ized use. A seasonal closure in the high country will be in effect from December 1 to April 30 each year. The Little Mountain area consists of 69,044 acres of BLM-administered public land located in Big Horn County, north of U.S. Highway Alternate 14, south of the Crow Indian Reservation and the Mon- tana state line, east of the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, and west of the Bighorn National Forest.

Teacher selected for education pilot program Rocky Mountain High School science teacher John Bernhisel has been selected as one of 21 high school sci- ence teachers to take part in NanoTeach, a new pilot program designed to help high school science teachers Nanotechnology Research Center, the National Nan- otechnology Infrastructure Network and the Stanford Nanofabrication Facility. Aspen Associates will eval- uate the pilot program for effectiveness.
