Nominations Requested for Carrizo Plain National Monument Advisory Committee

The Bureau of Land Management is requesting nominations for the Carrizo Plain National Monument Advisory Committee.

The 10-member committee advises the Bureau of Land Management on resource management issues at the monument, which sits on the border between San Luis Obispo and Kern counties.

The BLM will consider the nominations for 60 days from Monday (January 9), when the formal call for nominations was published in the Federal Register.

Nominations should be sent to Monument Manager, 3801 Pegasus Drive, Bakersfield, CA 93308.  For further information call Johna Hurl at (661) 391-6093.  Nomination forms are available on the web at

The following must accompany all nominations: support letters from represented interests or organizations; a completed background information nomination form; and any other information that demonstrates the nominee's qualifications.

Individuals may nominate themselves or others to the MAC.  Nominees, who should demonstrate a commitment to collaborative resource decision-making, must be residents of the state.  The BLM will evaluate nominees based on their education, training, experience and knowledge of the geographical area of the MAC.

Committee members were appointed to staggered terms last year to allow a transition to full three-year terms.
Nominations are requested for the following council positions:
• Public-at-large (two positions);
• Appointed by, or a member of, Kern County Board of Supervisors;
• A member of, or nominated by, the Central California Resource Advisory Council.
