About Resource Advisory Councils

The Rocky Mountain RAC provides advice and recommendations to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Colorado Rocky Mountain District, concerning the planning and management of the public land resources located within the geographic area of the Gunnison Field Office, Royal Gorge Field Office and the San Luis Valley Field Office. The 15-members of the Rocky Mountain RAC, who serve three year terms, operate on the principle of collaborative decision-making and strive for consensus before making official recommendations.

Advisory Council members are appointed to staggered three-year terms by the Secretary of the Interior.  A list of potential appointees is generated by an annual public nomination process.

Council members appointed by the Secretary will be representative of the following three groups:


(i)    hold Federal grazing permits or leases within the area for which the Council is organized; 
(ii)   represent interests associated with transportation or rights-of-way; 
(iii)  represent developed outdoor recreation, off-highway vehicle users, or commercial recreation activities; 
(iv)  represent the commercial timber industry; or 
(v)   represent energy and mineral development.


(i)    nationally or regionally recognized environmental organizations; 
(ii)   dispersed recreational activities; 
(iii)  archaeological and historical interests; or 
(iv)  nationally or regionally recognized wild horse and burro interest groups.


(i)    hold State, county, or local elected office; 
(ii)   are employed by a State agency responsible for the management of natural resources, land, or water; 
(iii)   represent Indian tribes within or adjacent to the area for which the Council is organized; 
(iv)   are employed as academicians by a natural resource management or natural sciences organization; or
