BLM Northeast California Resource Advisory Council Plans Meetings


The Bureau of Land Management Northeast California Advisory Council and its wild horse and burro management subcommittee will be meeting in late March and mid April in Alturas and Burney.  The meetings are open to the public.

The council’s wild horse and burro program subcommittee will convene Monday, March 28, at 1 p.m. at the BLM Alturas Field Office in Alturas. The group will review and comment on the BLM’s proposed strategy for improving the Wild Horse and Burro Program.

The full 15-member council will convene for a field tour and meeting on Wednesday and Thursday, April 20 and 21, in Burney. 

On April 20, the group meets at 10 a.m. at the Veteran’s Memorial Building on Main Street and departs immediately for the field tour.  Members of the public are invited.  They must provide their own transportation, food and beverages.

On April 21, the business meeting begins at 8 a.m. at the Veteran’s Memorial Building. The council will discuss alternative energy proposals, wild horse and burro management and activities in the Alturas, Eagle Lake (Susanville) and Surprise (Cedarville) field offices.

The council will hear public comments at 11 a.m.  Depending on the number of persons wishing to speak, a time limit could be established.

The 15-member advisory council works closely with BLM’s Northern California District manager and northeast California field managers, advising on BLM’s mission to conserve natural resources and manage multiple uses on the public lands.  RAC members represent a broad cross section of interests including livestock grazing, environmental groups, wild horse and burro interests, recreation, historical and archaeological interests, local government and the public at large.
