Bureau of Land Management lands are important to westerners and all Americans. These native sagebrush habitats, soaring peaks, and Joshua tree fields support both our economic well being and our western way of life. They are the “lonely lands” where our families hunt, camp, and seek the West’s open spaces. Healthy public lands also keep our water and air clean and support rare and valued wildlife. But change is coming, as energy development and a growing population’s hunger for natural resources puts more and more pressure on these lands. There is room for development on BLM lands but development needs to be balanced with being good stewards of our natural heritage. The future is being set today. These lands belong to all of us and your voice counts. Speak up today to tell the Bureau of Land Management, Battle Mountain District to identify and set aside our most wild BLM lands found throughout central Nevada and keep them the way they are!
The Battle Mountain District Office (BMDO) manages approximately 10.5 million acres of public land within Lander, Eureka, Esmeralda and Nye Counties. Opportunities for primitive recreation abound from fishing, hunting, hiking, horseback riding and camping. The upcoming Battle Mountain District Office's Resource Management Plan will guide how these lands will be managed for the next couple decades.
