BLM to Host Public Meeting on Proposed Land Use for Sage Grouse Conservation

The Bureau of Land Management will host a public meeting Friday, November 3rd, from 5:00 to 7:00p.m., at the Niles Hotel, 304 South Main Street, in Alturas, on a proposal to amend land use plans as they relate to conservation of the greater sage-grouse.

Participants will have the opportunity to share with the BLM their ideas on issues that should be addressed during the “scoping” period on the proposed plan amendments.

“We hope that public land stakeholders will join us for this meeting,” said BLM Northern California District Manager Alan Bittner.

“We believe that partnerships and inclusion in land use planning are vital to managing sustainable, working public lands.”

Meeting participants will hear information about the land use amendment process and learn more about submitting effective comments.

On October 5th, the Department of the Interior announced its intention to revisit land use plans in 10 western states to improve greater sage-grouse conservation and to strengthen communication and coordination between western states and the federal government.

The existing plans, which were amended in 2015, provide guidance and direction to BLM managers in California for the management of greater sage-grouse habitat.

As stewards, the BLM manages public lands for the benefit of current and future generations, supporting conservation as the agency pursues its multiple-use mission.

More information is available from Jeff Fontana, BLM public affairs officer, at 530-252-5332, or by email at [email protected].
