Advisory group explores coastal management, alternative energy and more
Coastal management, alternative energy proposals and a variety of other public land topics highlighted the agenda when the BLM's Northwest California Resource Advisory Council held a field tour and meeting Sept. 7 and 8 in Arcata.
RAC members hike along the beach accessible by the new Fleener Creek Trail in the Lost Coast Headlands area. Geology of the region was discussed at the field tour stop.
Below, RAC members participate in a fire planning exercise, part of the BLM Arcata Field Office's interpretive education program. Clockwise from left, Fire Management Officer Tim Jones explains the fire situation to RAC members, each of whom play a stakeholder role, as RAC members Stan Leach, Lynn Ryan (guest), Bob Schneider, Michael Kelley and Julie Rogers participate.
The exercise was done to acquaint RAC members with an exercise designed to inform audiences about the varied and sometimes conflicting stakeholder viewpoints that the BLM must consider in carrying out its multiple use mission.
