BLM Seeks Desert District Advisory Council Nominations

Desert Rat: A person who exhibits a sincere interest in, fondness for, and
knowledge of the desert and its natural resources. Bureau of Land Management
(BLM) California Desert District Advisory Council: A group of 15 desert
including five whose terms as council members expire on December 31.

If you qualify as a "desert rat", you may be interested in serving on the
BLM's California Desert District Advisory Council, a group of private
who advise BLM managers on programs and policies concerning the management of
11.5 million acres of public land in southern California. BLM currently is
seeking nominations to fill five council positions, according to District
Manager Linda Hansen.

"Each year, we solicit nominations for five positions on our 15-member
council. We rely heavily on council members to bring the unique perspective
of the
public and our users into our decision-making process," explained Hansen.
"Each member represent a specific category of interest and provides a new
dimension of knowledge and experience to the council."

The five positions to be filled for this three-year term, which begins
January 1, 2004, represent the following categories of interest: one
each for environmental protection, renewable resources, and the
public-at-large, and two for elected officials representing local or county
Anyone can nominate qualified persons in any of these categories.

Nominations must be submitted by August 30, 2003 to the California Desert
District Manager, Bureau of Land Management, California Desert District
22835 Calle San Juan De Los Lagos, Moreno Valley, Calif. 92553. Each
nomination must include: the name of the nominee; work and home addresses and
telephone numbers; a biographical sketch including the nominees work,
outside interests, and public service records; and the specific category of
interest area in which the nominee is best qualified to offer advice and
The elected official positions must be filled by an incumbent elected
of general-purpose government serving the people within southern California.

All nominations must include letters of reference from represented interests,
organizations or elected officials. Nominees will be evaluated based on
their education, training, and knowledge of BLM, the California Desert
and the issues involving BLM-administered public lands within southern

BLM also tries to balance the council geographically, recommending
appointment of qualified representatives from areas throughout the California
District. The district covers portions of eight counties, and includes 11.5
million acres of public land in the California Desert Conservation Area and
300,000 acres of scattered parcels in San Diego, western Riverside, western
Bernardino, Orange, and Los Angeles counties.

Council members serve without compensation except for reimbursement of travel
expenditures incurred in the course of their duties. Current council members
may be nominated for reappointment for an additional three-year term, unless
they have already served two full terms.
