BLM Bishop and Lone Tree Cattle Company Sign Rangeland Monitoring Agreement
The Bureau of Land Management and an Owens Valley rancher have signed an agreement to jointly monitor range conditions, the first for the BLM Bishop Office.
BLM Bishop Field Manager Bill Dunkelberger and Ken Zimmerman of the Lone Tree Cattle Company recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding, establishing a framework and specific plans to cooperatively monitor the BLM rangelands associated with Lone Tree’s allotments north of Bishop. A 2004 Memorandum of Understanding between the BLM and the Public Lands Council established the process for developing these types of cooperative monitoring programs.
