BLM Announces Temporary Safety Closure of Public Lands for Reno Air Races


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District-Sierra Front Field Office, announces the temporary closure of public lands adjacent to and north of the Stead Airport in Washoe County, Nevada, during activities related to the Reno National Championship Air Races. This action is taken in the interest of safety for spectators and participants during the racing seminar on June 12 through June 15, and during qualifying and competition events on Sept. 11 through Sept. 15, 2013. 
                                                                                                                     
The area of public land will be patrolled by Washoe County Sheriff’s Department and the Reno Police Department in coordination with the BLM to ensure that a safety perimeter within the course area is maintained throughout the duration of the events.
 
For more information please contact Arthur Callan, Outdoor Recreation Planner, at 775-885-6000.


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.
