    Description

    BLM wildlands are extensive areas which offer opportunities for increased backcountry use. Many BLM wildland areas are not currently receiving much backcountry use due to their unfamiliarity by the public and lack of facilities. Increased urban/BLM wildland interfacing can produce important benefits for both individuals and our society. Using various informational techniques, signing and field facility development, use of BLM wildlands by our urban population could be greatly increased.
