BLM Partnerships 

The BLM has long depended on working with others, through partnerships, to enhance public lands and to carry out its multiple-use mission. Meaningful engagement with diverse partners helps ensure that management decisions and efforts reflect the interests of affected communities while accomplishing shared or complimentary goals. Working with partners also helps improve rangeland health, guard fragile biological and cultural resources, support a wide range of recreational, educational, and interpretive activities, and tackle other stewardship goals.

The BLM’s partnerships program seeks to advance, strengthen, and support the use of partnerships nationally to improve the management, stewardship, and public enjoyment of the nation’s public lands.
