We’re celebrating our favorite American public lands managed by the BLM here in Nevada, including Lands with Wilderness Characteristics like the Tobin Crest! Essentially one long ridge, the Tobin Crest LWC is about 12 miles long that gradually gains elevation towards the south. Tobin Crest LWC is recognized as prime Greater Sage Grouse habitat, and is part of the proposed Grandfathers Wilderness Area in the Pershing County Economic Development and Conservation Act.
Signed this week in 1976, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act governs how the BLM manages our public lands. FLPMA requires the BLM to manage the public lands in its care for multiples uses for the benefit of the American people today and in the future.
