As part of its efforts to implement the John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public assistance in nominating lands managed by the agency on which the public is allowed to hunt, fish, or use the land for other recreational purposes, but to which there is no legal public access or where access is significantly restricted.
The BLM plans to post its first priority list online on this site by Thursday, March 12, 2020. The BLM will update the priority list every two years for at least the next decade. The public nomination period to identify parcels for inclusion on the BLM’s priority list opened on January 31, 2020, and will close on Saturday, February 29, 2020. Subsequent updates on BLM’s efforts will be published prior to the release of future priority lists in order to seek additional information and suggestions from the public.
An interactive comment map for identifying parcels for inclusion, along with instructions on how to use it and guidelines for nominating lands for inclusion, is now available and accessible under 'Comment Maps' below on this site. BLM will not include any personally identifying information concerning owners or ownership of any parcels in preparing the priority list or related congressional reports.
Please see the press release for more information. For any questions or issues accessing and using the map, contact Alex Yetsko at email@example.com.
