Final Environmental Impact Statement

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has prepared this Proposed Resource Management Plan (PRMP) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) to provide direction for managing public lands within the Alturas Field Office planning area and to analyze the environmental effects resulting from implementing the alternatives addressed in this PRMP.  
The Alturas Field Office planning area includes approximately 503,045 acres of BLM-managed surface acres in northeastern California. The geographic area includes public lands within the counties of Lassen, Modoc, Shasta, and Siskiyou, California.  BLM’s mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands it manages for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Alturas Field Office PRMP was developed in coordination with the Eagle Lake and Surprise Field Office Resource Management Plans (RMPs) to provide a consistent framework for managing public lands and resource uses in northeast California and northwest Nevada.
