Boy Scout Isaac Schroeder of Lovell completed the requirements for the rank of Eagle Scout from Troop 3071 by cleaning up and removing trash. Schroeder was assisted by scouts, other volunteers and the BLM.

“The project provided a great opportunity for me to positively benefit my community,” Schroeder said.

The group removed almost four tons of scrap metal, piles of barbed wire, scrap wood and other miscellaneous trash. The scrap metal was later recycled at the local landfill.

BLM Outdoor Recreation Planner Rory Glueckert was impressed by Schroeder’s demonstration of leadership and volunteerism in his community. “The project was a great example of Isaacs’s hard work ethic and dedication to his Boy Scout Troop and community,” Glueckert said. “The BLM and I applaud him for his selfless service and maturity.”

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
