ABOUT US:  The BLM manages 245 million acres – more land than any
other federal agency. This land, known as the National System of
Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including 75
million acres in Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1
billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral
estate throughout the nation. The BLM’s multiple-use mission is to
sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use
and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau
accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation,
livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by
conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on
public lands.  We are part of the U.S. Department of the Interior.

I’m not going to be able to make this event, but if you’re interested in land use in Alaska, you might want to accept their invitation.
