Upper Snake Resource Management Plan


The resource management plan (RMP) for the BLM Upper Snake Field Office will direct the agency's management of approximately 1.8 million acres of public lands in eastern Idaho. 

The BLM currently administers these lands under four separate land use plans: the Big Desert Management Framework Plan (MFP), the Big Lost MFP, the Little Lost/Birch Creek MFP and the Medicine Lodge RMP. The single Upper Snake RMP will replace these four plans once it is completed. 

The comprehensive RMP will respond to changes in resource conditions and new issues and policies that have arisen since the earlier plans were completed.
