Surprise Proposed Resource Management Plan and
Final 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 Surprise Field Office planning area and to analyze the environmental effects resulting from implementing the Preferred Alternative.
The Surprise Field Office includes approximately 1,220,644 acres of BLM-managed surface acres in northeastern California and northwest Nevada. The geographic area includes BLM managed public lands within the counties of Modoc and Lassen, California, and Washoe and Humboldt, Nevada. 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 Surprise Proposed RMP was developed in coordination with the Alturas and Eagle Lake Field Office Resource Management Plans (RMPs) to provide a consistent framework for managing public lands and resource uses in northeast California and northwest Nevada.
