    CALIFORNIA - BLM Schedules Public Meeting Seeking Input on Amargosa River Management Plans
    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Barstow Field Office is initiating a joint management plan for the Amargosa Wild & Scenic River (WSR) and Amargosa River Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). The WSR and ACEC are located in northeastern San Bernardino and southeastern Inyo Counties, Calif., near the communities of Tecopa and Death Valley Junction. The plans will guide management decisions and actions affecting the river and surrounding areas. The BLM is inviting public input to help identify resource conditions and management issues to be addressed in the joint plan.
    The BLM anticipates that the planning process will take approximately one and a half years to complete. While input throughout the planning process is welcome, comments received during the initial scoping period - September 1-30, 2011 - will prove more beneficial to the planning process.
    Comments may be submitted in writing to Chris Otahal, BLM Barstow Field Office, 2601 Barstow Road, Barstow, CA 92311; however, e-mails to amargosa@blm.gov are preferred. A short presentation regarding the planning process will be presented at the scoping meeting and written comments will be solicited, but oral comments will not be taken.
    The BLM will hold a public scoping meeting in Tecopa, CA, Wednesday, September 14, 2011, from 7-8 p.m., to garner comments for developing a management plan for the Amargosa River area. The public scoping meeting will take place at the Tecopa Community Center, 400 Tecopa Hot Springs Road, Tecopa, CA 92389.
    For additional information, contact David Briery at 951-697-5220 or Stephen Razo at 951-697-5217.
    As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
    Thanks in advance for your support,
    Ric Foster
