  • About the Edition

    The BLM [Bureau of Land Management] has completed the Draft MMP Amendment/EIS [Draft Monument Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement] to determine the appropriate management of livestock grazing on BLM-administered lands (public lands) within the Monument (approximately 275,100 acres). This MMP Amendment/EIS analyzes management options for the BLM-managed portions of the Monument that were not previously addressed by the 2007 MMP and will amend that plan. Among the most important decisions the BLM will make through this plan amendment are what lands should be made available for livestock grazing and with what protections for greater sage-grouse.
