BLM's Central California Advisory Council Plans Meeting in Cambria

Land management issues for the Bakersfield Field Office will be on the agenda when the Bureau of Land Management’s Central California Resource Advisory Council meets in Cambria on Sept. 11-12.

On Sept. 11, the advisory council will tour Piedras Blancas Light Station from 9 a.m. to noon. At 1 p.m. at Rabobank, 1070 Main St., Cambria., the RAC Off-Highway Vehicle Subgroup will meet briefly to vote on whether to present screening criteria for land acquisitions for OHV use to the full RAC. The full RAC meeting will convene following the subgroup meeting. Agenda items include resource management plans for the Carrizo Plain National Monument and BLM’s Bakersfield Field Office, an update of statewide BLM issues and reports from BLM Central California managers.

On Sept. 12, the council will meet beginning at 8 a.m. at the Rabobank. Council members will continue their discussion and take public comments from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Members of the public are welcome to attend both meetings and the tour, but must make reservations for the tour.

 “The advisory council provides a valuable forum for BLM and the public to exchange views on management of public lands,” said Tim Smith, manager for BLM’s Bakersfield Field Office.

For more information, contact David Christy, BLM Central California District public affairs officer, at (916) 941-3146.

The 12-member council, one of 24 such advisory councils in the western states, is comprised of members who represent broad natural resource interests including livestock grazing, environmental groups, recreation, wild horse and burro management, history and archaeology, the academic sector, local government and the public at large.
