BLM to hold Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument public workshop
Join the BLM for the first of two Trails and Travel Management Workshops for the monument
UKIAH, Calif. — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ukiah Field Office invites the public to the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument’s BLM Trails and Travel Management Workshop on January 28, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. This virtual workshop will provide an overview of the BLM travel management process, which is scheduled to begin later in 2021, and invite participants to provide comment.
The BLM and Mendocino National Forest co-manage the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument and believe partnerships and inclusion are vital to managing sustainable, working public lands. This workshop and associated planning efforts are specific to travel management within public lands administered by the BLM within the monument.
The BLM Trails and Travel Management Workshop is designed to engage stakeholders and members of the public on the vision for travel management at the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument. The plan will be important for designating a wide variety of roads and trails for motorized, non-motorized and non-mechanized recreational opportunities. The BLM will use an online map and survey tools, provide an overview of roads and trails within the monument, detail the current status of travel management, present an overview of the BLM travel management process, and offer opportunities to provide input.
