The Bureau of Land Management-Eastern States Office Public Room is currently available by appointment only in accordance with The President’s Coronavirus Guidance for America.
In managing widely scattered parcels and 40 million acres of federal mineral estate across the eastern states, the BLM ES works with numerous partners representing many diverse ecosystems and special landscapes. In order to develop the most comprehensive NEPA documents with clarity, we collaborate with Surface Management Agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, among others. Working with local governments and through public involvement with all our communities of interest, the BLM Eastern States seeks informed consent from all stakeholders in land use planning.
Plans in development include those for the Southeastern States (excluding Mississippi and Alabama which are covered by their own plan), and a plan amendment for Land Use Plans covering scattered parcels and hundreds of public islands on the rivers and lakes of Wisconsin and Minnesota.
