The Bureau of Land Management’s Keyesville area near Lake Isabella hosts a variety of users from off-highway vehicle riders to river rafters. Those who use the area would like to see the varied uses remain, but with better user education and law enforcement. (text continues below)
Peter Dewitt, BLM recreation planner, discusses recreation opportunities with attendees
Those were some of the main themes that came out at a public workshop last week in Lake Isabella held by BLM’s Bakersfield Field Office to discuss recreation in the Keyesville area. About 40 people attended the workshop.
In addition to the comments on recreation, attendees said they would like to see cultural and historic resources such as a mining stamp mill preserved and used for public education.
Information from the meetings will be used in planning recreational opportunities for the Keyesville area.
In addition to the Keyesville meeting, BLM’s Bakersfield office will host two public workshops in February to discuss travel management for the BLM’s Bakersfield Resource Management Plan.
The workshops will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the following locations:
For further information on travel management within the Bakersfield Field Office and the public workshops, or the resource management planning process, contact DeWitt at (661) 391-6120 firstname.lastname@example.org at Bakersfield Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, 3801 Pegasus Drive, Bakersfield, Calif. 93308.
