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 Stead Airport in Washoe County, Nevada, due to activities related to the National Championship Air Races. This action is taken in the interest of safety for both spectators and participants for qualifying and competition events during the Air Races on June 11th thru June 14th, 2014, and Sept. 6th thru Sept. 15th, 2014. 
 
The area of public land will be patrolled by Washoe County Sheriff’s Department and the Reno Police Department in coordination with 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.
