U.S. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIORBUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT
|Northwest Resource Advisory Council|
Our 15-member council provides advice and recommendations to the Bureau of Land Management's Northwest RAC Designated Federal Officer (DFO) on a wide variety of public land management issues. Colorado RACs assisted the BLM in developing two important guidelines, BLM Standards for Public Land Health and Guidelines for Livestock Grazing Management in Colorado and Recreation Guidelines to Meet Public Land Health Standards on BLM Managed Lands in Colorado . 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.
A NW RAC subgroup exists for the McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area. This subgroup reports directly to the NW RAC. For more information about the meeting of this subgroup, call David Boyd, (970) 876-9008

We are one of three Resource Advisory Councils (RAC) 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.
