Thank you for this opportunity to provide comments for how our public lands are managed. The BLM lands in Carson City District are important to me because (list your reason here or an anecdotal story).
I strongly support the District’s findings for recognizing the 12 areas listed in table 3-24 as being Lands with Wilderness Characteristics. Furthermore, I strongly encourage the District to manage the eight Lands with Wilderness Characteristics as outlined in the preferred Alternative E maintain wilderness characteristics.
Furthermore, I feel that an additional two of the 12 areas recognized as Lands with Wilderness Characteristics, should also be included with the 8 in the preferred Alternative E to be managed to maintain wilderness characteristics. These areas are Petersen Mountain, and North Monte Cristo. Petersen Mountain is a critical natural area adjacent to the Reno North Valley development that needs the strong protection management for wilderness characteristics provides. Petersen Mountain is also a very accessible destination for people from the greater Reno/Sparks area to enjoy primitive and unconfined recreation. The small portion of the North Monte Cristo unit in the Carson City District is an important part of the over 100,000 acres Monte Cristo Lands with Wilderness Characteristics found mostly within the Battle Mountain District. The Battle Mountain District recognizes the Monte Cristo unit as Lands with Wilderness Characteristics, and it is crucial that Carson City District manage their portion of the unit to assure integrity of this outstanding wild area.
[The 8 areas are Tule Peak, Rawe Peak, Stillwater Additions, Job South, Agai Pah Hills, Chukar Ridge, Excelsior North and Excelsior South- if you have experience or special interest in any of these areas, please include individual comments.]
I would also like to encourage the Carson City District to actively monitor and manage the nine Wilderness Study Areas within the district to assure that uses (particularly motorized and mechanized use) meet the non-impairment standards as describe in BLM Manual 6330.
