BLM Central California Advisory Council Plans Meeting in Bakersfield


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 Bakersfield on April 9.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. at the BLM Bakersfield Field Office, 3801 Pegasus Drive. Council members will take public comments from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. 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. The RAC Off-Highway Vehicle Subgroup will meet briefly before the RAC meeting to vote on whether to present screening criteria for land acquisitions for OHV use to the full RAC.

 “The advisory council provides a valuable forum for BLM and the public to exchange views on management of public lands,” said Kathy Hardy, BLM Central California District manager.

 On April 10, the advisory council will participate in the National Landscape Conservation System 10th Anniversary event at Carrizo Plain National Monument. The meeting and Carrizo event are open to the public, but reservations are required for the Carrizo event.

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.
