Nearly 40% of all US public lands are overseen by the Bureau of Land Management. These lands provide clean drinking water and fresh air, support healthy natural areas for wildlife and recreation outdoors, and protect innumerable cultural sites and landscapes valued by Indigenous and other communities across the West. However, for nearly 40 years the agency has prioritized resource extraction over conservation, recreation, wildlife, fragile watersheds, and cultural resource protection in partnership with tribes who have stewarded these lands for centuries.

The Bureau of Land Management is proposing to modernize its national policies to balance conservation with other uses on public lands. This policymaking creates a once-in-a-generation opportunity to ensure local land managers in the agency have clear directions, reliable funding, and credible science to prioritize conservation for the benefit of western communities, wildlife, and a sustainable future.
