BLM Seeks Applications for Recreation Permit Subgroup

The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) California Desert District Desert Advisory Council (DAC) announces an open application period for six members of its Special Recreation Permit (SRP) subgroup.  Persons interested in serving on the subgroup should meet at least one of the following qualifications pertaining to SRPs: be an event permittee, an event participant, or a representative of four-wheel, dual sport, equestrian, or other interests requiring SRPs.
The subgroup will identify operational issues in the application of required SRP procedures, provide comments about current or proposed actions by BLM, and aid in accurately communicating SRP procedures to interested parties.  The subgroup will report its findings to the full DAC, which ultimately advises the Secretary of the Interior through the BLM’s California Desert District Manager.

All members of the DAC SRP subgroup serve two-year terms without salary and meet at least four times per year.  All members of the subgroup will be required to disclose any direct or indirect interest in leases, licenses, permits, contracts, or claims that involve lands or resources administered by the BLM, or in any litigation related thereto.  No subgroup member will participate in any matter in which the member has a direct interest.  Selection and appointment of subgroup members is by the DAC with the concurrence of the designated federal official.

Persons wishing to apply for consideration as a member of the SRP subgroup of the DAC should submit their applications to External Affairs, BLM CDD SRP Lead, 22835 Calle San Juan de Los Lagos, Moreno Valley, CA 92553, or, no later than May 3, 2011. Subgroup information, including application for membership, is available on the DAC web link:, or by special request at (951) 697-5200.
