Will you be able to attend an upcoming Bureau of Land Management meeting regarding the draft Resource Management Plan?
Thursday, January 29: Yerington - Yerington Elementary School. 112 North California St. 5-7pm
You can stop by anytime between 5-7pm. There will be informational stations regarding the current Resource Management Planning process for our district with ample opportunities to talk one-on-one with BLM staff. Make sure to let the BLM staff know how much you appreciate the job they do in managing America’s resources and the importance of wild public lands to you.
The Bureau of Land Management in the Carson City District is in the middle of their land use planning process. The Resource Management Plan they are working on will guide how our 4.8 million acres of public lands will be managed for the next couple decades. Their preferred plan proposes to continue strong protective measures for the eight Wilderness Study Areas within the district and to manage an additional eight Northern Nevada areas to protect their wilderness characteristics.
The BLM deserves the highest recognition for proposing to protect these Lands with Wilderness Characteristics, although two outstanding areas have been omitted from the plan and should also be included: Petersen Mountain and Monte Cristo North. If you know either of these two areas, please talk with the staff about your experiences and the importance of protecting these amazing landscapes. If you don't have personal knowledge of these areas, speaking to the importance of protecting Lands with Wilderness Characteristics is just as helpful!
Please come to the meeting to show your support for our public lands. For more details and talking points, click here.
We will have talking points and more information for you at the meeting - just look for a Friends of Nevada Wilderness name badge.
