Click here to print this information
On October 5, 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.
The Bureau of Land Management will be hosting a public meeting Friday, Nov. 3, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the Niles Hotel, 304 South Main St, Alturas, to discuss 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.
Meeting participants will hear information about the land use amendment process and learn more about submitting effective comments.
