BLM Resource Advisory Council Meets Feb. 21-22 in Shelter Cove

Various topics related to natural resource conservation and public land management are on the agenda for a meeting of the Bureau of Land Management’s Northwest California Resource Advisory Council, Thursday and Friday, Feb. 21-22, in Shelter Cove.

On Feb. 21, the meeting will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the conference room at the Inn of the Lost Coast, 205 Wave Dr.  The council will hear public comments at 11 a.m.

Council members will discuss land use planning for the BLM Redding and Arcata field offices, management of the King Range National Conservation Area, public land forestry, and issues associated with marijuana cultivation on public lands.  The council will also hear status reports from the BLM Northern California District manager and from managers of the Arcata, Redding and Ukiah field offices.

On Feb. 22, council members will depart Shelter Cove at 8 a.m. for a field tour in the Whitethorn area.  Members of the public are welcome.  They must provide their own transportation, food and beverages. The field trip ends at noon.

The 12-member RAC, one of 29 BLM resource advisory councils across the United States, works closely with BLM managers to advise on the full range of the BLM’s multiple use management mission.  Members represent diverse interests including recreation, environmental groups, the timber industry, transportation and rights of way, local government, Native American tribal concerns and the public at large.
