Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area Subgroup to Meet


The California Desert Advisory Council (DAC)‘s Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA) subgroup will meet at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)’s El Centro  Field Office, 1661 S. 4th St., El Centro, CA 92243.  Scheduled agenda items include the ISDRA business plan update, which includes a proposed fee increase, and management updates.  For information regarding the draft ISDRA Business Plan and to submit public comments visit: http://blm.gov/4qkd .

Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, the DAC provides advice to the California Desert District Manager.  The ISDRA Subgroup operates under the authority of the DAC and provides input regarding the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area.  Input from this subgroup is presented directly to the DAC for its deliberation and consideration before the DAC makes a recommendation to the district manager. 

Located in the southeast corner of California, the Imperial Sand Dunes are the largest mass of sand dunes in the state.  Formed by windblown sands of ancient Lake Cahuilla, the dune system extends for more than 40 miles in a band averaging five-miles wide.  Widely known as "Glamis" among OHV enthusiasts, the dunes also offer fabulous scenery, opportunities for solitude, and a home to rare plants and animals.
