Northern California District Office

The BLM’s Northern California District manages about 3.5 million acres of public lands, covering a diverse landscape, ranging from the arid and rugged Great Basin to the fog shrouded forests of the North Coast. The Redding-based district office oversees field offices in Alturas, Arcata, Redding and Susanville and a field station in Cedarville. The district contains two distinct regions. On the east, the Applegate and Eagle Lake field offices oversee vast expanses of public lands in a high desert landscape, including about a million and a half acres in far western Nevada. Small communities depend on public lands for economic benefits, primarily through livestock grazing, and tourism uses ranging from hunting to mountain biking. These lands provide habitat for 14 wild horse herds and special status species, such as greater sage grouse. On the west, the Arcata and Redding field offices manage smaller, scattered blocks of public land with more emphasis on recreation demands from urban areas. Coastal forests have habitat for threatened species. There is high demand for recreation opportunities on coastal public lands and in mountainous inland areas. There is special emphasis on wilderness management and National Conservation Lands, including the King Range National Conservation Area.
