BLM Seeks Nominees for Special Recreation Permit Subgroup of the California Desert Advisory Council

The Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) California Desert District is soliciting nominations from the public for nine members of its Special Recreation Permit (SRP) Subgroup of the California Desert District Advisory Council (DAC) to serve two-year terms.

The subgroup identifies operational issues in the application of required SRP procedures, provides comments about current or proposed actions by the BLM, and aids in accurately communicating SRP procedures to interested parties. The subgroup reports its findings to the full DAC, which ultimately advises the BLM's California Desert District Manager.  All members of the DAC SRP Subgroup serve without salary and meet at least four times per year.

Desired expertise needed from members includes: California off-highway SRP interests, local government, commercial filming, biological/natural history/scientific expertise (qualified expertise, such as a natural resource advisor on air and water issues or a biological advisor on species), and representation of a local community.

Selection and appointment of subgroup members is by the DAC with the concurrence of the Designated Federal Official. Persons wishing to apply for consideration as a member of the Special Recreation Permit Subgroup of the DAC should submit their application no later than June 17, 2013. The application is available electronically on the following web link:, and by special request by calling the Barstow Field Office at (760) 252-6000. Nominations should be submitted to Katrina Symons, BLM Barstow Field Office Manager, at or 2601 Barstow Rd., Barstow, CA 92311.

The Obama Administration prohibits individuals who are currently federally registered lobbyists to serve on any FACA and non-FACA boards, committees, or councils.
