This summer, the BLM is working on a Resource Management Plan (RMP) tagged the Four Rivers Land Management Plan.

Joe Carberry posted this on kayakidaho.com – you can see the original page HERE

The area includes around 783,000 acres of public land in the counties of Adams, Valley, Washington, Payette, Gem, Boise, Canyon, Ada, and Elmore and encompasses sections of the Snake, Weiser, Boise and Payette Rivers.

The first step in the RMP process is the identification of management issues which will be used as the foundation for the entire planning process.

The Four Rivers Field Office Specialists have identified a list of preliminary issues including:

1. Special Status Species Management-Areas that require special designations for protection
2. Land Tenure Adjustments-Lands identified as available for disposal or retention
3. Recreation management-Special recreation management areas
4. Special designation evaluations. i.e. Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) and Wild and Scenic Rivers (WSR)
5. Access and Transportation-Areas open, closed, or limited to cross country travel.
