BLM advisory council
Central California residents concerned about public lands are invited to apply for a seat on a regional committee that advises the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The Central California Resource Advisory Council advises BLM’s Hollister, Bakersfield, Bishop and Mother Lode field offices. The latter covers the Sacramento region. The BLM manages 15 million acres in California – nearly 15 percent of the state’s total area. The advisory councils, composed of 12 to 15 citizens with experience in natural resource issues, help BLM manage public lands to serve multiple needs.
Three positions are vacant on the council. One is designated for a representative of an environmental, archaeological, historical, recreational or wild horse and burro organization. Two are for representatives of state or local government, Indian tribes, academic institutions or a member of the public-at-large.
Nominations are due March 12. Forms and more details are online at For more information, contact David Christy at (916) 941-3146 or [email protected]
