BLM Northeast California Advisory Council Meets Feb. 17-18 in Cedarville


Members of the Bureau of Land Management’s Northeast California Resource Advisory Council will discuss wide-ranging natural resource conservation topics when they meet Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 17 and 18, at the BLM Surprise Field Office, 602 Cressler St., Cedarville.

The meeting begins at 1 p.m. Feb. 17.  Agenda items include a discussion about management of the Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon-Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area, an update on the Sage Steppe Ecosystem Restoration Project, and current information about wind energy development proposals under consideration by BLM offices in Alturas, Cedarville and Susanville.
 
Time for public comments has been reserved at 4 p.m.
 
On Feb. 18, the council convenes at 8 a.m.  Agenda topics include information on BLM projects being completed as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, an update on wild horse and burro management and reports from BLM field managers.
 
The 15-member advisory council, one of 24 such bodies in the West, works closely with BLM managers to advise on the agency’s public land and natural resource management mission.
 
Members represent a broad cross section of public land interests, including federal grazing permit holders, environmental interests, recreationists, the timber industry, history and archaeology interests, wild horse and burro interest groups, state and local government, and the public at large.
 
More information is available from BLM Public Affairs Officer Jeff Fontana, (530) 252-5332, or by email, jfontana@blm.gov.
