Commercial outfitter and guide (O&G) services provide important recreation opportunities on public lands. Commercial uses are managed under Special Recreation Permits (SRP) on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Lands. The issuance of a SRP constitutes a Federal action. All federal actions must be in compliance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Historically, commercial permits were issued under a categorical exclusion (CX), which provided only limited environmental analysis and does not cover activities within areas with special designation (Wilderness Study Area- WSA, Area of Critical Environmental Concern- ACEC). This document will serve as a programmatic environmental assessment to analyze the impacts of issuing SRP’s to registered outfitters and guides lands managed by the Surprise Field Office. It will identify a range of potential impacts that could result from the issuance of SRP’s when conducted in accordance with mitigation measures and administered through the revised permit process.
