In 2025, just 15 years from now, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act will have been guiding the agency’s management for 50 years. In that same year, the National Landscape Conservation System will turn 25.
What should the BLM managed lands look like in 15 years? Our Conservation Vision for BLM Lands in the Year 2025 poses a long term challenge to the BLM to grow its system of National Conservation Lands and to enhance the stewardship of all of the lands under its guardianship.
The document also lays out some immediate administrative actions that can lay the groundwork over the next few years to achieve a long term conservation vision. It is our hope that the concepts and ideas in this document will spark and inform discussions within the BLM and among people who care about our public lands.
