The BLM administers 249.8 million acres of America’s public lands, located primarily in 12 western states. It is the mission of the BLM to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. There’s no better place for the BLM to do that work than in Grand Junction, Colorado where over 75% of our lands are public.
We know public lands because we are public lands.
Our quality of life, our economy and our future depend on public lands.
1. We are public lands.
2. It’s a really nice place to live.
