Northwest Resource Advisory Council

We are one of three Resource Advisory Councils (RACs) in Colorado appointed by the Secretary of the Interior to represent constituent public land users. The other Colorado RACs are the Southwest RAC and the Front Range RAC.

(See the National RAC Map and Local RAC Map)

Our 15-member council provides advice and recommendations to the BLM's Northwest RAC Designated Federal Officer (DFO) on a wide variety of public land management issues. The Northwest RAC operates on the principle of collaborative decision-making and strives for consensus before making official recommendations.

Our members are appointed through an annual public nomination process to serve staggered three-year terms with one-third of our membership subject to appointment or reappointment each year. We were chartered in 1995 and must be re-chartered every two years.
