BLM National Conservation Lands


From mountain heights to rugged ocean coastlines, within deep river canyons and across vast deserts, and featuring remote and wild as well as surprisingly accessible areas, the Bureau of Land Management’s National Landscape Conservation System (National Conservation Lands) recognizes and protects some of the West’s most spectacular natural areas.

These areas are part of an active, vibrant landscape where people live, work and play. They offer exceptional opportunities for recreation, solitude, wildlife viewing, exploring history, scientific research, and a wide range of traditional uses.


BLM's Fire Program

The BLM, a leader in our nation’s wildland fire management efforts, undertakes a broad range of activities to safely protect the public, the natural landscape, wildlife habitat and recreational areas for our country’s citizens.

The program includes fire suppression, preparedness, fuels management, prevention and education, community assistance and protection, and perhaps most significant, safety.

The BLM meets these challenges by fielding highly trained and skilled professional firefighters and managers.

Approximately 95% of all wildfires in California are caused by human activity
