Federal BLM Asking Idaho For Money
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Upper Snake Field Office wants to improve the public’s experience at the St. Anthony Sand Dunes and is submitting two grant requests to the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation for financial assistance.
The BLM wants input on these project applications, according to The Prairie Star of Great Falls, Mont.
The first application will be submitted to the Recreation Vehicle Program, established using RV registration fees. The BLM would like to complete shelter installation at the remaining seven “B” sites at the Egin Lakes Campground (Egin). Many visitors camping in those locations this summer expressed support of the idea, stating they would enjoy the shade a shelter would provide.
The remaining application will be submitted to the Off Road Motor Vehicle Fund (ORMV), which is supported by a portion of the total state gas tax revenues. The grant application proposes to construct a permanent structure at Egin Lakes Campground that would house all BLM and Fremont County motor vehicles.
