AbstractPublic–Private Partnerships are an integral part of successful public land management. The Sulphur Springs allotment, which is administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rawlins Field Office, Rawlins, Wyoming, USA, contains a largely checkerboard land-ownership pattern that is 56% public. The significance of this allotment is its location at the confluence of the perennial headwaters of Muddy Creek. Other than the southeast corner and western edge, most of the stream miles are on private land. Within the Rawlins Field Office boundary, only 10% of all riparian habitats are located on public land. It is essential that BLM work with partners to manage riparian habitat on a landscape scale. Sulphur Springs allotment is one example of this approach.
