The purpose of the workshops is to illustrate BLM land uses that influence local/regional economic
activity and to describe the dependency of the local/regional economy on BLM lands.  We will
demonstrate the current and possible future influence of land uses on the local economy. The
workshops encourage participants to work together to answer questions regarding the evolving nature
of resource management in the West, to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the area’s economic
situation, and to explore local/regional activity and trends that influence the local social and
economic conditions. Those attending a workshop will explore the influence of BLM resources and
resource uses in the nine-county planning area that encompasses all or parts of Cascade, Chouteau,
Fergus, Judith Basin, Meagher, Petroleum, Pondera, Teton, and Lewis and Clark Counties.


The BLM recognizes that the social and economic role of public lands is changing.  The economy of
the West has diversified, and the uses of and demands on public lands have diversified as well. 
Recreation, scenery, wildlife habitat, solitude, and ecological functions are increasingly
important attributes of public lands.  BLM management of these attributes can contribute to the
social and economic development and success of nearby communities.

We understand that successful resource management must involve those communities close to public
lands. These workshops are an excellent way to promote understanding of how the social and economic
analyses fit into the BLM planning process.
