Comments

Even before the creation of the National Landscape Conservation System, the BLM had a conservation mantle. FLPMA itself provides for protection of wilderness and wilderness study areas as well as for areas of critical environmental concern (ACECs), and BLM national monuments. These and other protected BLM lands, including historic and cultural properties, now fall under the umbrella of the NLCS and the panel will consider the role of the NLCS in broadening the BLM’s mission, and in affording the agency a conservation agenda.
