BLM Citizen Advisory Council Meets Dec. 5 & 6 in Little River
A variety of natural resource conservation topics will be discussed when the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Northwest California Resource Advisory Council (RAC) meets Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 5 and 6, in Little River, on the Mendocino County coast.
The Dec. 5 session begins at 9 a.m. in the conference center at the Little River Inn. After orientation presentations, the RAC will discuss land use planning projects and information related to management of the California Coastal National Monument. Public comments will be taken at 11 a.m.
On Dec. 6, the council will convene at 7:30 a.m. at the Little River Inn and depart for a tour of BLM-managed public lands on the Mendocino Coast. Stops will include overlooks of the California Coastal National Monument and the Stornetta Public Lands near Point Arena.
Members of the public are welcome on the tour. They must provide their own transportation.
The RAC is comprised of 12 members who represent diverse public land interests including recreation, environmental groups, the timber industry, local government and the public at large. The council advises the BLM by working closely with managers of the agency’s Arcata, Redding and Ukiah field offices. It is one of 24 BLM resource advisory councils in the western United States.
