BLM to Reschedule Squirrel River Special Recreation Management Area Public Scoping Meetings


Fairbanks—The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will reschedule the Squirrel
River Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) public scoping meetings in
Kiana, Noorvik, and Kotzebue. Due to a scheduling conflict, the public
scoping meetings for these communities, previously scheduled for November
8, 9, and 10, will be postponed until further notice. The BLM will
announce the new meeting information for Kiana, Noorvik, and Kotzebue once
established. Updated Squirrel River SRMA public scoping meeting

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.
