Wildland Spotlight : Cedar Mountain WSA

The Cedar Mountain Wilderness Study Area (WSA) encompasses about 21,500 acres of specially protected BLM lands in Washakie and Hot Springs counties. This Bighorn Basin WSA in between the towns of Thermopolis and Worland provides opportunities for naturalness, solitude, and primitive and unconfined recreation. Cedar Mountain is the area's major landmark, and the topography is characterized by deep, steep-sided drainages flowing toward the Bighorn River, with elevations ranging from 4200 to 5500 feet. Fossilized reptiles and petrified wood are exposed in the Meteetse and Lance formations and mammalian fossils have been discovered in the Fort Union formation.* The area provides important habitat and hunting opportunities for a variety of wildlife, including raptor nesting sites. Over 27 Tribes claim ancestral ties to the area and Northern Arapahoe and Eastern Shoshone tribal members rely on the area's natural and cultural resources today.

Current threats and opportunities

10,000 acres of Cedar mountain have been recommended for wilderness by the BLM, and oil and gas potential in the area is low. Senator Barrasso's Wyoming Public Lands Initiative Act of 2023 would release the area from it's Wilderness Study Area protections and establishment special management provisions recommended by the Wyoming Public Lands Initiative.
