The Bureau of Land Management’s Central Montana Resource Advisory Council (RAC) will meet August 10, at the Winifred Community Hall in Winifred, Montana.

The RAC meeting will begin at 9:00 a.m. with a 30-minute public comment period. The council will then review a number of topics including the HiLine Resource Management Planning effort; BLM weed management efforts; a sage grouse study project; and Undaunted Stewardship. This meeting is scheduled to adjourn at 5:30 p.m.

On August 11, RAC members will be in the field, visiting a number of sites along the Upper Missouri National Wild and Scenic River.      


The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
