National Conservation Lands 15-Year Strategy


The National Landscape Conservation System 15-Year Strategy, 2010 to 2025 provides national-level guidance for managing BLM’s National Conservation Lands. The national strategy is organized around four major themes: 1) Ensuring the conservation, protection, and restoration of NLCS values; 2) Collaboratively managing the NLCS as part of the larger landscape; 3) Raising awareness of the value and benefits of the NLCS; and 4) Building upon the BLM’s commitment to conservation. 

Each BLM state office prepared a step-down strategy organized around the same four themes outlined in the national strategy.  The state strategies, which identify statewide and National Conservation Lands unit-level action items, serve to prioritize the most important work to be accomplished.
