BLM Brings Awareness to Human Caused Fires

Winnemucca, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Winnemucca District, would like to remind everyone that fire danger is on the rise as we enter summer.

At this time, fuel loadings are 43% above the historical average (from 1998-2015).

Planning 2.0: Improving the Way We Plan Together

BLM LogoAs part of a continuing commitment to improve their management of the nation’s public lands, the Bureau of Land Management is reviewing the way they develop and update our Resource Management Plans (RMPs).

This initiative, known as Planning 2.0, aims to increase public involvement and incorporate the most current data and technology into land use planning.  They have released proposed revisions to planning regulations, along with a preliminary economic analysis and categorical exclusion for public review and comment.  By implementing these improvements, the BLM endeavors to enhance the way that it involves the public in its planning efforts, including measures to provide earlier, easier, and more meaningful participation.
