The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manages 15.2 million acres of public lands in California - nearly 15% of the state's land area - and 1.6 million acres in northwestern Nevada.  BLM California also administers 47 million acres of subsurface mineral estate underlying federal surface land, 2.5 million acres underlying privately owned land, and 592,000 acres of Native American tribal land where BLM has trust responsibility for mineral operations. The BLM's multiple-use and sustained yield mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.  The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
