Buttercup Ranger Station gets new Storage Buildings

by Charla Teeters, UDG

The United Desert Gateway (UDG), through its long-standing partnership with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), is proud to work for the betterment and improvement of facilities and programs at the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA). Through our assistance agreement with the BLM, the UDG was able to receive Department of Transportation Funds for the purpose of continued improvement of facilities and visitor access at the Buttercup Ranger station in the southern portion of the ISDRA (The Buttercup Ranger station is located just off of Interstate 8 at the Grey’s Well exit).

In November of 2009, the UDG awarded the construction contract for the paving of the back parking lot and the construction of two 50×20 metal buildings to Castillo Construction.

These buildings, completed on March 31st, will provide essential storage of rescue and personnel vehicles, trailers, and operational equipment. They will also allow BLM personnel to work out of the harsh weather and help limit equipments exposure to the elements.

The United Desert Gateway is a non-profit, public benefit corporation comprised of the Chambers of Commerce of Brawley and El Centro, CA and Yuma, AZ.
