WINNEMUCCA -The Bureau of Land Management, Winnemucca District, invites recreational users of the Black Rock-High Rock National Conservation Area (NCA) to a public workshop on Thursday, Sept. 26, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Winnemucca District Office located at 5100 E. Winnemucca Blvd.
The purpose of the workshop is to gather information from visitors who recreate in or have experiential knowledge of the area to assist in developing the recreation management strategies for the NCA.
A brief presentation by the Great Basin Institute (GBI) will introduce the attendees to the various features of the NCA, review maps and resource characteristics and facilitate a group discussion on recreation activities.
GBI will also provide a written survey for the attendees to complete during the workshop. Participants may receive a copy of the survey results, if desired.
In addition to this event, two workshops are also scheduled in Reno, the first of which is intended for the general public on Oct. 3 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and the second for key stakeholders on Oct. 24 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Both workshops are to be held at the BLM State office located at 1340 Financial Blvd, Reno.
This recreation survey is also available by mail and anyone wishing to support the BLM in this important information gathering process may request a copy by emailing Mark Kimbrough, project lead, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
