BLM seeks citizen advisers

MONTROSE — The Bureau of Land Management is seeking nominations for openings on two Colorado resource-advisory councils, which advise the BLM on public-land management.

The Northwest Resource Advisory Council and Southwest Resource Advisory Council have five openings each on their 15-member boards. The deadline for nominations and references is May 2, according to a BLM news release.

The Northwest council advises the field offices in Silt, Grand Junction, Kremmling, Craig and Meeker.

The Southwest council advises field offices in Montrose and the San Juan Public Lands Center in Durango.

The councils are among 28 the BLM uses across the West. Nominees must be residents of Colorado and will be judged on their training, education and knowledge of each geographical area.

“These local volunteers have extremely important views on how BLM policies play out on Colorado’s federal public lands, and how these policies affect public and private land owners, recreation and environmental users, and state and local land agencies,” said Helen Hankins, state director of the BLM in Colorado.
