Cease any effort to exchange the Durfee Hills BLM parcel out of public ownership. And, initiate and complete a new connecting road into the Bullwhacker area of the Upper Missouri Breaks Monument.
Montanans demand a new road access into the Bullwhacker area without surrendering public ownership of the Durfee Hills public land. This is crucial to maintaining public use and benefit of vast areas of public lands in Central Montana.
- Montana State Director, Bureau of Land Management
We, the undersigned citizens of Montana and neighboring states and communities hereby petition the Montana office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). We request the BLM to cease any effort or involvement in any land exchange proposal that would result in the loss of public ownership and management control of what is known as the Durfee Hills BLM Land Parcel located in southern Fergus County.
We further request that BLM recognize that lack of an overland road access to the Durfee Hills Parcel does not equate to lack of public access. In fact, reasonable and adequate public access to this parcel is available by general aviation transport.
We further request the BLM to move forward with the opening of an alternative road access to the Bullwhacker area of the Upper Missouri Breaks National Monument with appropriate speed to re-establish public road access as soon as possible.
