2010 Jack Morrow Hills Coordinated Activity Plan Annual Report


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rock Springs Field Office (RSFO) has released the 2010 Jack Morrow Hills Coordinated Activity Plan (JMH CAP) Annual Report. The RSFO has been in the process of implementing JMH CAP management decisions and actions since the Record of Decision (ROD) was signed in 2006; the report provides an update for the past year.

The JMH CAP encompasses approximately 622,000 total acres, of which the BLM RSFO administers approximately 574,800 acres. This area includes the Steamboat Mountain, Greater Sand Dunes, White Mountain Petroglyphs and Oregon Buttes Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs); a portion of the South Pass Historic Landscape ACEC; the Oregon Buttes, Honeycomb Buttes, Greater Sand Dunes, Buffalo Hump, Whitehorse Creek, South Pinnacles and Alkali Draw Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs); and the Greater Sand Dunes, Continental Peak Side Trail, and the Oregon, Mormon Pioneer, Pony Express and California National Historic Trails special recreation management areas (SRMAs).

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.
