Blm Seeking Comment on Newly Aquired Lands

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Public comments on proposed management approaches for recently acquired public lands in far northwest Nevada are now being accepted by the Bureau of Land Management Surprise Field Office in Cedarville.

An environmental assessment discussing proposed management alternatives and environmental consequences for the Home Camp area is now available for review and comment. It is available online at www.blm.gov/ca/surprise. Click on the Home Camp Environmental Assessment link.

Comments should be sent to Bureau of Land Management, PO Box 460, Cedarville, CA 96104, or sent by email to dryan@blm.gov. Comments must be received by May 24, 2102, to ensure consideration.

The BLM acquired about 15,000 acres of formerly private lands through the Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act in 2010. The area, locally known as Home Camp, is about 25 miles east of Eagleville, Calif., in Washoe County, Nev. The lands were acquired specifically for conservation of fish and wildlife habitat, to provide public access and to maintain multiple uses.

The environmental assessment discusses proposals to enhance wildlife habitat, improve public recreation opportunities, improve aspen stands, and to restore riparian areas and sage steppe ecosystems. It also discusses proposals for managing livestock grazing.

Why We Need Reader Support

 

Our independent, local coverage takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. It is also not particularly lucrative. Our primary revenue source, banner advertising on SusanvilleStuff, is simply not enough by itself, and we increasingly need to rely on reader support to pay the bills.

 

Every dollar our readers contribute goes towards making SusanvilleStuff a stronger voice in the community with better, more comprehensive content. We are committed to never putting up a paywall for our readers, and content on SusanvilleStuff will always be free. These contributions are completely voluntary, and very appreciated.
