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.
