April Meeting of Sierra Front-Northwestern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council Cancelled


Carson City, Nev.—The meeting of the Sierra Front-Northwestern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council (RAC) scheduled for April 4-5 at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Carson City District office has been cancelled. The RAC is still tentatively scheduled to meet at the BLM’s Winnemucca District Office in August.

RACs provide advice on the management of public lands and resources. These citizen-based groups provide an opportunity for individuals from all backgrounds and interests to have a voice in the management of these lands, and to help improve their health and productivity. RAC recommendations address all public land issues, including: land use planning, recreation, noxious weeds, and wild horse and burro herd management areas.



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.
