The BLM in western Oregon plays an important role in the economic health of local communities. People rely on BLM lands for recreation and tourism, timber harvest, clean water, the protection of threatened and endangered wildlife, and carbon storage. In turn, the BLM relies on local communities to get engaged, share opinions, and participate in the planning processes that are vitally important to land management.
The Story Map below shares some highlights about the communities in the planning area. You'll hear from Ron Dunton, Acting State Director, explore land ownership and population changes, and learn about how the BLM is creating jobs in western Oregon.
You can view all of the Resource Management Plan Story Maps on the ESRI website.
