Photo of Browns CanyonPUBLIC SCOPING FOR BROWNS CANYON NATIONAL MONUMENT RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PLAN ENDS

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) thank you for participating in public scoping.

On May 14, 2019, the BLM and the USFS published in the Federal Register a notice of intent (NOI) to prepare a Resource Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement (RMP/EIS) for Browns Canyon National Monument (BCNM).

The BLM and USFS are reviewing the comments collected during the public comment period, which ended on June 20, 2019.


The agencies anticipate releasing a draft RMP/EIS in Fall 2019. The public will be notified of the availability of the draft through this website, press releases, and the Federal Register.
 
 
 
The Browns Canyon National Monument was established by presidential proclamation under the Antiquites Act on February 19, 2015. The monument covers 21,604 acres of scenic and diverse natural resources along the upper Arkansas River of Colorado and encompasses both BLM and U.S. Forest Service (FS) lands.

Browns Canyon National Monument includes the Arkansas River Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA), the Browns Canyon Wilderness Study Area, the Browns Canyon Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), and U.S. Forest Service roadless areas. In addition, a portion of the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area (AHRA), a cooperative management area along the Arkansas River administered by the FS, the BLM, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), is included.

This project is to develop an interagency cooperative plan, to manage, into the future, the many resources the monument has to offer.
