BLM Approves Decision for Sage Steppe Restoration
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has approved records of decision (ROD) putting into place a Sage Steppe Restoration Strategy for public lands managed by the Alturas, Eagle Lake and Surprise field offices in northeast California.
The strategy directs leaving juniper stands in the rocky uplands where they have historically thrived. It recommends treating 14,000 to 21,000 acres per year during the first two decades, with treatments of up to 34,000 acres annually for the next three decades of the 50-year plan.
Those who feel they would be adversely affected by the BLM decision can file an appeal with the Interior Board of Land Appeals. Details on filing an appeal are available in the ROD document or by calling the BLM Alturas, Eagle Lake or Surprise field offices.
