America’s Western Lands

A vast amount of this nation’s shared natural heritage—245 million acres—is owned and administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Located largely in Western states and Alaska, BLM lands represent many types of terrain—including canyon country, Arctic tundra, sage-grass steppes, mountains, and ancient forests—that serve as important habitat for fish, iconic birds like the sage grouse, and big game such as antelope, bison, bighorn sheep, and elk. 

We work with others to identify priority conservation areas across the West and ensure that they are adequately protected for all generations. These lands define who we are as a people, embodying our shared dreams of freedom and opportunity.
