Document Description
The Bureau of Land Management released the proposed Northwest California Integrated Resource Management Plan and Final Environmental Impact Statement, updating management for public lands in BLM’s Arcata and Redding field offices. If finalized, the plan will guide management of approximately 382,200 acres of BLM-managed public land and approximately 295,100 acres of subsurface minerals in Butte, Del Norte, Humboldt, Mendocino, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, and Trinity counties for the next 15 to 20 years. The management plans for the Redding and Arcata field offices have not been updated since the mid-1990s. The proposed plan addresses changing use patterns, provides for a broad array of recreation uses, plans for wilderness management, and protects and conserves Wild and Scenic Rivers and Areas of Critical Environmental Concern. A Notice of Availability will be published on Friday June 21 in the Federal Register to open a 30-day protest period and initiate the Governor's Consistency Review. Any written protests must be received by July 22, 2024.
