Bureau of Land Management

About Bureau of Land Management

OUR MISSION: The Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the multiple use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The BLM manages one in every 10 acres of land in the United States, and approximately 30 percent of the Nation’s minerals. These lands and minerals are found in every state in the country and encompass forests, mountains, rangelands, arctic tundra, and deserts. A MULTIPLE-USE MISSION FOR A GREATER AMERICA: Congress tasked the BLM with a mandate of managing public lands for a variety of uses such as energy development, livestock grazing, recreation, and timber harvesting while ensuring natural, cultural, and historic resources are maintained for present and future use. This multiple-use approach enables our agency to prioritize and advance the President’s priorities which include energy independence, shared conservation stewardship, keeping our boarders safe, putting Americans back to work, and serving the American family. To do this, we manage public lands to maximize opportunities for commercial, recreational, and conservation activities. This promotes healthy and productive public lands that create jobs in local communities while supporting traditional land uses such as responsible energy development, timber harvesting, grazing, and recreation, including hunting and fishing. LOCATIONS: Most BLM public lands are located in these 12 western states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. BLM headquarters is located in Washington, DC. Other locations -- STAY CONNECTED. Complete the form located here ( to stay connected with the BLM.
