Business owners across northwest California this week submitted a letter with 101 signatures to the Redding and Arcata field offices of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) urging the agency to protect unique public lands that are important for locals and visitors alike as they update their Resource Management Plans: “We know it is critical that the final [BLM] plan strike a balance among many of the uses of public lands, including development and recreation. As you work to achieve this balance, we urge you to please take all appropriate measures to conserve the relatively few places that remain in a pristine condition — for our future, for our children, and for our local economies.” Read more on our blog (link in profile). #BLMWild #QuietRec #yourpubliclands #publiclands #northwestcalifornia #california #sacramentoriver #river #wildlands #wilderness #recreation #getoutdoors #redding #arcata #tourism #bureauoflandmanagement #scenic #beauty #landscape 📸: Bob Wick, @mypubliclands

Quiet recreation on southwest Bureau of Land Management-Wyoming public lands is making a LOUD economic impact. A new report shows how amazing opportunities for camping, hiking, hunting, fishing and more contribute to the local economy - and why maintaining balance is important for an upcoming BLM land use plan for the Rock Springs region.

BREAKING: An announcement today by @usinterior Secretary Ryan Zinke could put #wildlife and the West’s #outdoor economy at risk. Recommendations to change historic 2015 #sagegrouse conservation plans could undermine years of science-based, collaborative work to protect our iconic #sagebrush landscapes, habitat for more than 350 species, and the Western way of life. #SaveGrouse #BLMWild 📸: Bob Wick, BLM #publiclands #yourpubliclands #landscape #habitat #outdoors #science #collaboration #conservation #nature #environment #wildlands

What’s good for the bird is good for the herd! #SageGrouse habitat conservation plans were developed after years of broad-based public input across the West to preserve America’s iconic sagebrush landscapes and the 350+ species that depend on them. But currently, @usinterior Secretary Ryan Zinke is “reviewing” these historic achievements. LIKE if you agree: We need to give #SaveGrouse collaboration time to work!

"Serving as a Resource Advisory Council member is an important responsibility and cancelling RAC meetings prevents all RAC members from ensuring that public input is thoroughly considered. This important work is why I have joined dozens of RAC members from throughout the west in asking @usinterior Secretary Ryan Zinke to immediately reinstate RAC meetings."

"From the air, the landscape takes on a new personality. The connectivity of rock formations, plant communities, and water brings together a wholeness that can be overlooked from the ground. My hope is that the aerial perspective helps convey the importance of these lands to the public and land managers alike, contributing to the dialogue about wilderness values on the landscape." - Jeremy Austin, @theoregondesert #BLMWild 📸: Juniper Mountain in Oregon's Lakeview BLM District.

Eastern #Colorado's Sand Gulch & Falls Gulch #Mountain area offers exceptional #backcountry #hiking and big game #hunting opportunities. It encompasses the epitome of the #ArkansasRiver Canyonlands with dense pinion-juniper woodlands that roll over hilly and canyoned terrain, while also providing mid-elevation mixed forests in the higher sections to the north. There are also rare and vulnerable riparian plant communities and wetlands on the east side of Falls Gulch Mountain. And a short #hike to the top of Falls Gulch Mountain offers incredible views of the surrounding Arkansas River Canyonlands with the jagged Sangre de Cristo Mountains as your backdrop. The public has until May 5 to speak up for this #BLMWild place!

Eastern #Colorado's Badger Creek dissects rugged, arid terrain, including impressive steep red sandstone uplifts. Badger Creek offers excellent opportunities for trout #fishing, #hiking, and #wildlife viewing. You may see a herd of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, mule deer, brown trout, or many other forms of life that depend on this important waterway.

“Guard, protect and cherish your land, for there is no afterlife for a place that started out as Heaven.” - artist Charles Russell

Montana's Russell Country is defined by an evolving ruggedness, as pristine prairie sliced by the Musselshell River transforms to rough and craggy breaks approaching the Missouri River. One of the last places to be settled in the West, this sparsely populated section of the country remains almost as remote and wild as it was over 200 years ago. Soon, citizens will have the opportunity to speak up for Russell Country and continue Charlie Russell’s advocacy for these incredible #BLMWild places. Stay tuned. 📸: @huntphotos #publiclands #yourpubliclands #montana #conservation #wildlands #wilderness #nature #environment #recreation #landscape #photography #naturephotography @mypubliclands

Eastern #Colorado's Badger Creek, with headwaters just a few miles north in South Park, is one of few perennial streams in the rugged #ArkansasRiver Canyonlands, located just east of the Chaffee/Fremont County line. A hike along this vegetated stream section speaks to the great amount of life that this #watershed supports. Or take in a breathtaking view of #BighornSheep #Canyon and the scenic Sangre de Cristo #Mountains beyond from atop Jack Hall Mountain, one of the higher peaks in the area at over 11,000 feet and one of the few areas to stroll through bristlecone pine trees in the region.

The Echo Canyon/Table Mountain area is one of the wildest and inaccessible in Eastern #Colorado's #ArkansasRiver Canyonlands, and also the largest, containing over 30,000 acres of #wilderness character land. The scenic #TableMountain over #EchoCanyon can be glimpsed from a drive along US Highway 50, or better yet, a boating trip on the Arkansas River. This area is also an important #wildlife corridor and #habitat for many species, including Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, black bear, elk, mule deer, pronghorn, mountain lion, as well as bird species such as the bald eagle, American peregrine falcon, and Mexican spotted owl.

In 2015, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) initiated a land management planning process for 668,000 acres of public lands in eastern #Colorado, mostly along the #ArkansasRiver corridor west of Pueblo. Since then, the agency has considered input from the public that will determine which areas will be conserved for their #wilderness, #recreation, and #wildlife values, and which will be made available for extractive or industrial uses such as mining and drilling for oil and gas. The plan is now entering the next phase where public input is vital. The BLM has just released “preliminary alternatives” that provide information on the management direction the agency is considering for the plan.

We are the public in #publiclands, and we all have a say in how our lands are managed. Visit wildconnections.org to learn how to speak up for wild places in Eastern Colorado, and if you live in the area, how to get more involved through attending hikes and public meetings. #BLMWild

“The wildness of this landscape was what most inspired Charlie Russell — a wildness that was fading fast after his arrival in Montana in 1880. Through his art, he captured this fading wildness to make sure we didn’t forget about it and the people, wildlife and features that characterized this landscape.” - @huntphotos
