Experimental Stewardship Committee Meets September 1 in Cedarville


Various natural resource conservation topics will be discussed when the Modoc-Washoe Experimental Stewardship Program steering committee meets Wednesday, Sept. 1, at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Surprise Field Office, 602 Cressler St., in Cedarville, Calif.

The meeting, which is open to the public, begins at 9 a.m. and adjourns at 4 p.m.

Steering committee members will hear reports from member agencies including the BLM Surprise Field Office and Modoc National Forest Warner Mountain Ranger District, and hear from technical review teams working on management issues on BLM and Forest Service lands.

The committee will also discuss wild horse management in the Sand Creek area, elect new officers and review committee appointments.

The steering committee advises the BLM’s Surprise Field Office and the Modoc National Forest’s Warner Mountain Ranger District on natural resource issues and livestock grazing management on public lands.  One of three such committees established by Congress, the group works on a full consensus basis to promote innovative range management approaches and to provide incentives for excellence.

Members represent a wide range of interests, including livestock grazing permit holders, California and Nevada state wildlife agencies, the BLM, Forest Service, resource conservation districts, timber interests, environmental groups, sporting groups and local government.
