The BLM manages the King Range NCA in ways compatible with the Biden administration’s “America the Beautiful” initiative, which aims to provide opportunities for outstanding recreation experiences, while sustaining the health of the public lands.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 western states, including Alaska, on behalf of the American people. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. Our mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.
