ANCHORAGE – The Bureau of Land Management will be surveying land southeast of Talkeetna starting in early June and continuing through the summer. The contractors hired to do the survey work, Northwind Site Services, will use helicopters to access higher elevations, UTVs and vehicles for the lower elevations.
BLM and Northwind will make every effort to contact affected land owners and lease holders before working in the area. Call the Northwind survey manager at (907) 569-2001, ext. 111, or the BLM point of contact at (907) 271-4214 with information about recent or unrecorded survey work or questions.
