Summary: Section 121 of the Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and Protection Act of 2000 (Steens Act), 16 U.S.C. 460nnn-41,authorizes Cooperative Management Agreements (CMAs) to provide for cooperative conservation and management of Federal and non-Federal parcels. Section 2 of the Steens Act specifies that a CMA may plan and/or implement cooperative measures to meet "public and private land objectives" of the Steens Act. With the experience of several years of implementation of the Steens Act, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Burns District and Roaring Springs Ranch, Incorporated, an Oregon Corporation (RSR, INC.), recognize that it would serve the purposes of the Steens Act to adjust access easement ownerships and locations and cooperative road maintenance to provide for improved administrative and public access to the Steens Mountain Area.
