The Wilderness Society and Wyoming Outdoor Council invites the public on a field trip to hike into the site where Plains Energy (PXP) plans to develop a 136-well natural gas project in the Noble Basin of the Wyoming Range, in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. The all-day field trip will be on Thursday, July 15th.
This field trip will follow the project access road through National Forest lands and will then proceed on foot down to the actual development site to view the proposed well pad locations. Discussions will focus on the project, the lease-retirement option, possible alternatives in the DEIS, and impacts to and possible mitigation efforts for wildlife, groundwater, air quality and recreational values. The draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) for the project is expected later this summer.
For those coming from the Jackson area, meet 8:00 am at SE corner of Smith’s parking lot at the corner of Hwy 89 & High School Rd. The group will pick up Sublette County participants at the Daniel Jct. store at 9:00 am for carpooling. The trip is expected to last until 4-5:00pm.
Bring a sack lunch, water, sneakers or hiking shoes, appropriate clothing,you’re your camera.
Another field trip is planned for Wednesday, August 11th.
