MORENO VALLEY, Calif. - The Bureau of Land Management is inviting the public to share what they value most within the newly designated Mojave Trails National Monument for the BLM to consider as the monument management planning process begins.

A series of envisioning sessions will enable the public to provide comments on specific interests and concerns that will assist the BLM in the development of the Mojave Trails National Monument Management Plan. These sessions are in advance of public scoping meetings which will begin in the fall.

The Envisioning Sessions are scheduled for:
 Tuesday, August 30, 2016  (5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.)
 Hampton Inn, 2710 Lenwood Rd, Barstow, CA 92311  

 Wednesday, August 31, 2016  (5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.)
 Yucca Valley Community Center, 57090 Twentynine Palms Highway, Yucca Valley, CA 92284

 Thursday, September 1, 2016  (5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.)
 El Garces Hotel, 950 Front St., Needles, CA  92363

"We want the public to helps us determine how their new monument should be managed," states Mike Ahrens, Needles Field Office Manager. "Public input helps the BLM develop a lasting framework for important land use and resource management decisions."

The BLM will work collaboratively with the public, cooperating agencies, and partners to begin identifying the vision for the planning area and key management priorities to be addressed in the upcoming draft  monument management plan.

The sessions will be open house format with the same kind of information provided at each location.
