BLM Resource Advisory Council to Discuss Sage Grouse Conservation


Members of the Bureau of Land Management’s Northeast California Resource Advisory Council will review and comment on a draft environmental impact statement on conservation of greater sage-grouse and their habitat, Wednesday, Dec. 4, at 10 a.m., at the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office, 2950 Riverside Dr., Susanville.

Anyone interested will have the opportunity to address the council at 11 a.m.

The 15-member RAC will receive comments developed by its sage-grouse conservation subcommittee on the draft EIS that will amend 12 BLM resource management plans in Nevada and northeast California.  Plans for the Alturas, Eagle Lake and Surprise field offices are included in the process.

The draft document contains six management alternatives. A public comment period is now underway.

Additional information on the draft EIS can be found at http://on.doi.gov/1dxWdQt.
