Resource Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement
The BLM, Tucson Field Office, is preparing a Resource Management Plan (RMP) and an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to analyze BLM's management of public land in the Ironwood Forest National Monument (IFNM) in Arizona. Together, the RMP and EIS will analyze and establish BLM's management practices for these lands in response to the Presidential Proclamation establishing the Monument, current legislation and policies, and the demand to use public land and its resources.
BLM will be hosting three public meetings to provide information on specific topics that were mentioned by members of the public during previous public workshops. At each meeting, one or more brief presentations will be followed by a question and answer period. BLM invites the public to attend these meetings.
If you would like more information regarding the IFNM or its planning process, please visit www.blm.gov.
All three informational public meetings will be held
from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Pima County
