It is the mission of the BLM Needles Field Office to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The public lands contribute in many different ways to the wealth of the nation and to the quality of life of every American citizen. For example, we provide recreation opportunities; we provide access to resources; and we protect some of the Mojave's most significant cultural, historic, and natural places. And, we serve communities through science, wildland firefighting, and law enforcement.
