BLM Invites Public Comments on King Range Fee Proposal


The Bureau of Land Management has extended the deadline for public comments on a plan setting use limits and fees for recreation in the King Range National Conservation Area on northern California's Lost Coast.

Comments are due by Friday, Oct. 18, 2013.

A business plan detailing the proposal is available online at www.blm.gov/ca/arcata, by contacting the King Range National Conservation Area at (707) 986-5400, or by emailing a request to ca338@blm.gov.

Written comments should be sent to Bureau of Land Management, King Range National Conservation Area, PO Drawer 189, Whitethorn, CA 95589 or sent by email to ca338@blm.gov. "King Range Business Plan" should be used in the subject line.

The BLM proposes to begin using a new wilderness permit system that will for the first time set limits on the number of overnight users in the wilderness areas and back country. The business plan details a new proposed overnight wilderness fee, and new fee schedules for developed campgrounds. All fees would be used in the King Range to maintain and improve facilities and services, increase law enforcement and fund programs focused on natural resource conservation and improvement.
