Resources for Educators

BLM education programs and materials help teachers and students understand resource areas, multiple-use land management, and how citizens can affect land use decisions. Scout leaders, BLM staff, and others who work with students also find the materials useful. If you're a teacher, the following programs are designed specifically for you.
