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.
