The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is considering a once-in-a-generation change to how they manage public lands. As part of this process, they are hosting a meeting in the Denver area on Thursday, May 25 from 5-7 p.m. MT to gather input from the public. Will you plan to attend and voice your support?
Historically, BLM’s management of public lands has favored extractive uses over conservation and recreation. 90% of BLM public lands in the lower 48 states are open to leasing for oil and gas. The vast majority of these places are also open to hard rock mining.
Now, BLM has launched a comment period to gather feedback about the ways it should balance its mission and focus on conservation, recreation, wildlife, and cultural lands protections. This is a historic opportunity to shape the future of public lands.
Please plan to attend BLM’s in-person meeting at the Denver West Marriott, 1717 Denver West Blvd, Golden, Colorado on Thursday, May 25, 2023 from 5-7 p.m. MT. We need to participate in this session and show our support for a balanced approach to management of public lands.
And if you haven’t yet, please submit a comment to the Bureau of Land Management today in support of this effort.
Thank you for your support.
