Inventory of Lands with Wilderness Characteristics


As part of BLM's requirement to maintain an updated inventory of lands with wilderness characteristics, the San Luis Valley Field Office assessed public lands within the Field Office in 2012 to determine whether wilderness characteristics are present outside of existing wilderness study areas (WSAs), and the congressionally-designated Rio Grande Natural Area. The BLM reviewed its original 1980 wilderness inventories, as well as lands identified by BLM staff and lands proposed by the public, in order to identify lands with potential wilderness characteristics. Of the eleven areas identified through the review, one was found to possess wilderness characteristics.
