Established in 1946, the BLM is today the nation's largest land manager. Our roots go back to the years after America’s independence, when the young nation began acquiring additional lands. At first, these lands were used to encourage homesteading and westward migration. The General Land Office was created in 1812 to support this national goal.

They manage 245 million acres of public lands—that’s one in ten acres in the country—and 700 million acres of mineral estate. These public lands and subsurface acres are integral to the lives and livelihoods of communities and families across the country. This is accomplished by 12 main regional offices and headquarter offices in Grand Junction, Colorado and in Washington, DC.

This event is offered in a hybrid modality, please join us in the Forbes Building (room 202) or via Zoom:
