BLM Announces New Manager for Eagle Lake Field Office

Brian Novosak, the new field manager for BLM’s Eagle Lake Field Office

Brian Novosak, an experienced natural resource administrator with a broad background, has been named manager of the Bureau of Land Management Eagle Lake Field Office in Susanville.

“Brian has worked across the nation in posts for three federal agencies and two state natural resources agencies. This experience has prepared him well for the diversity of topics and issues he will address with our team in BLM-California,” said BLM California State Director Jerry Perez. “We are happy to welcome him to our leadership team.”

Novosak most recently completed an assignment as manager of the BLM’s Glenallen, Alaska Field Office. He has also held positions at the BLM headquarters in Washington, D. C.; in the El Centro, California Field Office; the Utah State Office; and the Pecos District Office in Roswell, New Mexico.

Outside of the BLM, he has worked for the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish and the Missouri Department of Conservation. Novosak holds a Masters of Science degree in zoology and a Bachelor of Science degree in biology.

“Throughout his career, Brian has distinguished himself as a coalition builder, working closely with communities, private industry and interest groups in managing public lands and natural resources,” said BLM Northern California District Manager Alan Bittner.

“He exemplifies the BLM’s commitment to partnerships and inclusion as vital tools to managing sustainable, working public lands.”

Here in Susanville Novosak will oversee about a million acres of public lands in northeast California and northwest Nevada, and a staff of about 40 permanent and seasonal employees. The field office manages a regional wild horse and burro corral and is a key partner in the Susanville Interagency Fire Center.

Novosak reports to Susanville in early November. He replaces former field manager Ken Collum, who transferred to the BLM Carson City District.
