Speaker: Cheryl Blanchard, Archeologist, BLM, Lower Sonoran Field Office
The purpose of this presentation is to highlight key features of the newly approved Bureau of Land Management (BLM) policies for the establishment of National Trail Management Corridors on public lands – and more. This presentation describes how the new BLM policies guides the agency in fulfilling its responsibilities under the National Trails System Act, and other laws, for National Scenic and Historic Trails, including inventory, planning, management, and monitoring. Key policy highlights include determining the nature and purposes of each National Trail; conducting an interdisciplinary inventory of resources, qualities, values, and associated settings and uses; establishing a National Trail Management Corridor based on the inventory; permitting uses that will not substantially interfere with the nature and purposes of the National Trails; making efforts to avoid activities incompatible with the purposes for which the trails were established; and establishing a management standard for trails not yet congressionally designated that are recommended as suitable through an authorized National Trails Feasibility Study, or are under such study.
