BLM Offers Public Informational Meeting on Bodie Hills Report


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Bishop Field Office and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) will host a public informational meeting to present the final report for the Bodie Hills conservation action planning effort.  The meeting is scheduled for Monday, March 15, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Bridgeport Memorial Hall, 73 N. School St., Bridgeport. 

In late 2007, the BLM and TNC entered into a cooperative agreement to develop a conservation action plan for the Bodie Hills, which could be used to guide future site-specific vegetation management projects to protect and enhance the ecological integrity of the area.  A cornerstone of the conservation action planning effort was a series of three workshops held during 2008 with a diverse group of stakeholders to review and refine ecological models, review findings and identify potential vegetation management scenarios.  The March 15 informational meeting is designed to present the final report from this cooperative effort.

A hard copy or compact disk of the final report may be requested online at http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/bishop.html.  The executive summary to the final report is also available for review and downloading at this web address.  You may also request a hard copy or CD by contacting Dale Johnson, Interagency Vegetation Management program leader, at (760) 872-5055 or by email at dale_f_johnson@ca.blm.gov.
