Members Named to BLM Northeast California Resource Advisory Council


The Bureau of Land Management’s Northeast California Resource Advisory Council is welcoming five new and returning members.  Council appointments were announced by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar.

Members reappointed to three year terms, and their areas of representation are Todd Swickard, of Susanville, livestock grazing; Alan Cain, of Alturas, wild horse and burro interests; Gale Dupree, of Loyalton, national and regional environmental groups; and Jim Chapman, of Susanville, elected officials.

Susanville resident Brad Hanson was newly appointed as a public at large representative.

“Our advisory council provides excellent advice and recommendations in the challenging task of managing public lands and conserving natural resources,” said Nancy Haug, the BLM’s Northern California district manager.  “Our advisory council members offer the BLM diverse points view, which are valuable in resource conservation discussions.”

The 15-member council works closely with Haug and managers of the Alturas, Eagle Lake and Surprise field offices.

The next meeting is April 20 and 21 in Burney.
