President Obama signs proclamation declaring the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument in Northern California.

Public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service in the new National Monument are some of the most scenic and biologically diverse landscapes in northern California. They range from rolling, oak-studded hillsides to steep creek canyons and ridgelines with expansive views.

Surrounding the farms, ranches and orchards in a region stretching from Napa County to the mountains of the Mendocino National Forest north of Clear Lake, these lands provide valuable wildlife habitat, lands critical for scientific study and recreational opportunities for residents of the region and beyond.

California popplies are abundant in a flat area surrounded by mountains.

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.
