The reclamation work at the Kleenburn Recreation Area near Acme is almost complete. The office of Abandoned Mine Lands funded most of the work as the area was once used as a coal mine. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department also contributed to the project. Sheridan County owns the property and the site will be under the supervision of the Sheridan County Parks and Recreation Board. The board members are the Sheridan County Commissioners.
The Board officially adopted 4 rules for the Kleenburn site. Board member Bob Rolston…
The Board will also request permission from the Wyoming Department of Transportation to place the Kleenburn Recreation Area on Interstate signage near the Acme exit.
The area is currently closed and the Recreation Board decided to open the site on January 15th at daybreak. Board member Mike Nickel suggested they hold a grand opening celebration for the site sometime this summer, possibly in connection with the annual Wyoming free fishing day.
Temporary signs explaining the rules should be erected in time for the opening.
