The Modoc-Washoe Experimental Stewardship Steering Committee, a public rangeland advisory group, is seeking nominations for a member to represent sporting interests on public lands in northwest Nevada.
Nominees should be knowledgeable about wildlife habitat management and issues important to hunters, anglers and other sporting interest groups. They should have the ability to attend meetings four times annually in Cedarville, Calif.
Anyone interested should contact Allen Bollschweiler, manager of the BLM Surprise Field Office in Cedarville, at (530) 279-6101, or by email at Allen_Bollschweiler@blm.gov.
The Modoc-Washoe group is part of the national Experimental Stewardship Program, created by Congress in the Public Rangelands Improvement Act of 1978. It encourages rangeland management innovation and provides incentives for improving conditions on public rangelands. The Modoc-Washoe group advises the BLM’s Surprise Field Office and the Modoc National Forest’s Warner Mountain Ranger District.
The committee has diverse membership including livestock grazing permit holders, and representatives from the BLM, Forest Service, California Department of Fish and Game and Nevada Department of Wildlife. Other interests represented include the timber industry, invasive weed control interests, and environmental interests from Nevada and California.
