BLM Seeks Public Nominations for California Resource Advisory Councils


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is calling on the community to participate in shaping the future of public land management in the State. Vacancies on its Resource Advisory Councils (RACs) are up for grabs, and the BLM is eager to hear from diverse voices across California. Positions in Susanville, Alturas, Cedarville, Redding, and Arcata are either vacant or soon to be, presenting a unique opportunity for those interested in making a difference.

The California Desert District Advisory Council, Central California Resource Advisory Council, and Northern California Resource Advisory Council are key bodies involved in advising the BLM on crucial land management issues.

BLM California State Director Karen Mouritsen said “Resource advisory councils assist the BLM with recommendations for a dynamic portfolio of programs from conservation to renewable energy,” said. “I appreciate our council members for their dedication and willingness to come together and provide advice on the BLM’s management decisions.”

These councils play a pivotal role in decisions related to land use planning, fire management, recreation, and other important matters concerning public lands.

The BLM is particularly interested in individuals from a wide array of backgrounds to ensure a balanced and well-rounded representation. Conservationists, ranchers, outdoor recreationists, government officials, and energy industry representatives are all encouraged to step forward and lend their unique perspectives.

Nominations, along with the required documentation, must be submitted by August 18.
