The BLM has approved the issuance of up to three Special Recreation Permits for non-motorized competitive events within developed recreation areas of the Río Grande del Norte National Monument.  The BLM appreciates the input provided by the public during the preparation of the environmental assessment, which contributed to a thorough analysis of the potential impacts, and a well-informed decision.
