U.S. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIORBUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT
|Volunteers in Nevada|
The public lands, administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Nevada, reach from the Sierra Nevada mountains in the West, across the Great Basin, to pinyon-juniper woodlands in the east. They include mountainous desert country which is the home of Desert Bighorn sheep, the official Nevada State animal. Scenic wonders are found throughout the state, from Red Rock Canyon in southern Nevada to Blue Lakes in northern Nevada.
The BLM administers land used for mining and livestock grazing which are among the state's primary economic industries, geologic wonders, great open spaces, recreation and wilderness. The BLM has a responsibility to chronicle and preserve natural and cultural heritage for future generations.
The delicate balance among these often-competing uses is BLM's responsibility.
Archeology, recreation, range and wildlife are just four options available to anyone desiring to get involved. National Public Lands Day is another option, and what a great chance for families to come together with a purpose.
Working with BLM will increase your skills which may help you in the future. Or, it may help you decide what your future will be.
You will make new friends with the same interests, and have fun while accomplishing something that could have far-reaching effects.
If you are not a U.S. citizen, you must possess a valid visa to become a BLM volunteer.
What are the benefits?
The only areas which prohibit volunteers are law enforcement, fire suppression, and participating on special use flights.
