The Bureau of Land Management’s Northern California Resource Advisory Council will convene for a meeting and field tour Thursday and Friday, Nov. 5 and 6, in the conference center at the Red Lion Hotel, 1929 Fourth Street in Eureka.
On November 5th, the council will convene at 9:00a.m. and depart immediately for a field tour to public lands managed by the BLM Arcata Field Office. Members of the public are welcome. They must provide their own transportation, meals and beverages.
On November 6th, the council will meet at 8:00a.m. Agenda items will include development of a new land use plan for public lands managed by the Redding and Arcata field offices, the status of conservation planning for greater sage grouse, and update from the BLM’s Eagle Lake, Arcata, Redding and Applegate field offices.
The meeting is open to the public. Public comments will be accepted at 11:00a.m. Those unable to attend can participate by teleconference. The toll-free conference phone number is (888) 395-5718 and the passcode is 58970.
The advisory council works closely with the BLM and its managers in Redding, Susanville, Alturas and Arcata, advising on all aspects of the agency’s public land management mission in northern California and far northwest Nevada.
The 15 members were appointed by the U. S. secretary of the interior and represent varied interests including recreation, livestock grazing, timber and forest products, environmental organizations, wild horse and burro management, local government, the academic sector, state natural resource agencies and the public at large.
The new board replaces advisory councils previously in place for northeast and northwest California. It will meet several times a year in locations around the BLM district. It is one of 29 BLM resource advisory councils in the western states.
