California Desert District

West Mojave Plan

The planning area covers 9.3 million acres in the western portion of the mojave Desert in southern California covering parts of San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Kern, and Inyo Counties. This interagency habitat conservation plan is being prepared by the BLM in collaboration with the region's cities, counties, state and federal agencies. The plan would apply to the 3.2 million acres of public lands and 2.9 million acres of private lands within the planning area, and would be consistent with both the resource management plans adopted by each of the region's five military bases and with the desert tortoise recovery plan.
