BLM's Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) Program encourages the public to educate themselves about the many dangers of abandoned mines on public lands, including but not limited too: fall hazards; snakes, insects, and other wildlife; bad air; and falling rock or other debris.  Partnerships such as the one with Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) helps BLM accomplish many of its outreach and education goals.  The websites below are for educators, students, and public.
