The Bureau of Land Management Carson City Field Office have released their draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) and are asking the public to review and comment. They are holding their second public meeting in Fallon on January 15th. You can stop by anytime between 5 to 7pm. There will be informational stations regarding the current Resource Management process for our district with ample opportunities to talk one-on-one with BLM staff about the importance of wild public lands to you.
The Resource Management Plan they are working on will guide how our 3 million acres of public lands will be managed for the next couple decades. Their preferred plan proposes to protect some of our Northern Nevada lands with wilderness characteristics, although key areas have been omitted from the plan, such as Petersen Mountain and the Monte Cristo North. If you know either of these two areas, it would be great for you to talk with the staff about your experiences and the importance of protecting these amazing landscapes. If you don't, speaking as to the importance of protecting lands with wilderness characteristics is just as helpful!
We need your help to attend this critical meeting to submit written comments to the Bureau of Land Management, urging them to include these special areas back into the RMP as lands with wilderness characteristics.
Date: Thursday, January 15th from 5-7pm
Location: The Fallon Convention Center
The RMP/EIS will address issues such as lands with wilderness characteristics, as well as Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), lands and realty, utility corridors, solar energy, wind energy, and so much more.
It is essential that we have the Fallon community to attend this meeting to show the BLM that our wild lands matter!
