BLM Proposes Revised Travel Management Plan for California Desert Conservation Area

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released the Draft Amendment to the California Desert Conservation Area Plan and Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for the West Mojave Route Network Project (WMRNP). The WMRNP is a travel management plan covering 9.24 million acres in southern California, of which 3.1 million acres are managed by the BLM in San Bernardino, Inyo, Kern, Riverside and Los Angeles Counties. The WMRNP revisions will supplement the 2006 West Mojave Plan. The draft amendment includes travel management changes to off-highway vehicle areas, including modifying access to four lakebeds, modifying competitive event access and eliminating the permit requirement for motorized access to the Rand Mountains-Fremont Valley Management Area.
