Mission Statement:

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) may best be described as a small agency with a big mission: To sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. It administers more public land – over 245 million surface acres – than any other Federal agency in the United States. Most of this land is located in the 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also manages 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation.

Program History:

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), created in 1946 through a merger of the General Land Office (GLO) and the U.S. Grazing Service, has roots going back to the creation of the GLO in 1812. In celebration of 200 years of land management, the BLM presents this website -- a collection of the stories, traditions and heritage that make up our unique history. BLM employees, current and retired, have contributed to this labor of love and many more will continue to add their unique histories over time.
