Whats new?
The BLM is pleased to announce that the Eastern Interior Proposed Resource Management Plan/Final Environmental Impact Statement (PRMP/FEIS) is now available below. (If you are reviewing the interactive document online, links within the document will automatically direct you to specific maps. If you download the document to your own computer or are viewing the PDF version, the map links won’t work. Therefore, we are providing a complete set of maps for the PRMP/FEIS on the Maps Page.) A limited number of printed and CD copies are available from the BLM’s Eastern Interior Field Office in Fairbanks and Alaska State Office in Anchorage. You may request copies by phone (907) 474-2340 or by email at EasternInterior@blm.gov.

The Protest period for the Eastern Interior Proposed Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) formally closed on August 29, 2016.

On April 30, 2014 the U.S. Board on Geographic Names officially changed the name of the Black River to Draanjik River. Draanjik is the traditional Gwich'in name for the river and translates as "caches along the river." In the PRMP/FEIS, the BLM continues to use the name "Black River” to avoid confusion, – especially for those comparing draft and proposed versions of the document. However, in the Approved RMP and Record of Decision, the BLM will change the name of the "Upper Black River Subunit" to the "Draanjik Subunit", change all references to the mainstem Black River to Draanjik River, and update maps to show the new name.
