Action Alert: Alabama Hills Management Plan Scoping
On the heels of the designation of the Alabama Hill National Scenic Area, the BLM will begin building out an Implementation Plan that will guide the future of this beloved piece of public land outside of Lone Pine. As stated in the legislation that designated the National Scenic Area in March of 2019, the BLM must “develop a comprehensive plan for the long-term management of the Scenic Area”. Management plan development under the National Environmental Policy Act begins with a process called “scoping.” Scoping allows the public and all interested parties to provide input on what they envision for the future of the Alabama Hills. We know the Alabama Hills are loved by many and it’s usage continues to increase. The BLM needs the public’s help in determining how to continue existing recreational uses in a manner that preserves the values of the Scenic Area. Friends of the Inyo is interested in seeing a strong balance of conservation and recreation in the final Plan. This is where you come in. These are YOUR public lands!
