Entering the Dominguez-Escalante NCA by raftThe Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area Resource Management Plan

The BLM released the Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area (D-E NCA) Proposed Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a 30-day protest period on June 30, 2016. The protest period ended on July 31, 2016. See Timeline on the navigation menu to the left for what's next.

The BLM released the Draft RMP and EIS for the D-E NCA for public review on May 17, 2013. This initiated a public comment period, which ended on September 23, 2013.

Why is the BLM writing an RMP for the D-E NCA?

A new RMP for the D-E NCA is needed to ensure that the long-term management of these lands achieves a level of protection and conservation consistent with legislative guidance.

What's the difference between the Draft RMP and the Proposed RMP?

The BLM considered the comments it received during the public comment period and made changes to the draft RMP. These changes were incorporated in the proposed RMP.

How will the BLM use the RMP?

Once the RMP has been finalized, it will guide the BLM's management of all facets of the D-E NCA for the next several decades. This includes land use decisions regarding biological resources, cultural resources, wilderness, recreation, travel management, livestock grazing, and special designations such as wild and scenic rivers.
