Badger Springs Recreation Plan Site Tour

PHOENIX -- The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Agua Fria National Monument is hosting a public site tour in preparation for the proposed Badger Springs Recreation Plan.

BLM staff will guide the tour and be available to discuss potential  recreation improvements in the Badger Springs area. Potential trails and site developments will be discussed. 

The BLM is in the preliminary stages of preparing the Recreation Plan. The tour is to help educate the public and to get comments on potential issues in advance of the formal process of adopting a plan.

A recreation plan provides the framework for providing services that benefit individuals, communities, economies and the environment.

The tour begins at 10 a.m., Oct. 23, 2012. It concludes at noon.

Interested parties can meet at the entrance to the Badger Springs area near the informational kiosk. To access the area, take the Badger Springs Road exit (# 256) off Interstate 17.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2014, the BLM generated $5.2 billion in receipts from public lands.
