Northern and Eastern Mojave Planning Area
The Northern and Eastern Mojave (NEMO) planning area covers 3.3 million acres in parts of San Bernardino and Inyo Counties. It is a largely undeveloped region, stretching from north and northwest of Death Valley National Park to I-40 on the south, and from the Nevada state line on the east to beyond the western boundary of the Mojave National Preserve on the southwest, covering over 2.7 million acres of BLM managed public lands.
The BLM, in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Department of Fish and Game, has developed proposed plan amendments and final environmental impact statement in the Northern and Eastern Mojave planning area of the California Desert Conservation Area (CDCA). The plan amendment addresses threatened and endangered species conservation and recovery and adoption of public land health standards, evaluation of segments for eligibility in the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, and changes resulting from the California Desert Protection Act passed in 1994. It also designated routes of travel in Desert Wildlife Management Areas consistent with Federal regulations.
