BLM Seeks Comment on Proposed Headwaters Plan Amendment
In August 2015, the BLM asked for public comment on issues that should be addressed when it develops an environmental assessment analyzing potential environmental impacts associated with amending the plan that guides management of the Headwaters Forest Reserve.
See the full press release on the BLM newsroom website.
For a list of helpful documents related to the amendment, please visit the Headwaters Management and Planning page.
Friends of Headwaters
In 2014, the BLM, Humboldt State University and Redwood Parks Association formed a partnership to foster the understanding, enjoyment and stewardship of Headwaters. Check out this press release for more information about the agreement.
As part of this agreement, the BLM's partners created a Friends of Headwaters Facebook Page.
Headwaters Vintage Poster
In celebration of Earth Day 2014, the BLM introduced a vintage poster depicting the Headwaters Forest Reserve. Stop by the BLM Arcata Field Office to pick up a free copy!
This poster is part of a series that depicts some of the spectacular landscapes of the BLM's National Conservation Lands. The purpose of the campaign is to highlight these ruggedly beautiful and culturally rich places that belong to all Americans.
The BLM periodically releases updates on Headwaters management via Headwaters Headlines. The most recent edition was released in Winter 2014. To receive these updates via email, contact the BLM at firstname.lastname@example.org.
