Owyhee Canyon Overlook

Wilderness lovers, off-roaders, and cattle: can they all get along on the same public land?  Maybe not the exact same parcels, but the Bureau of Land Management is working to accommodate all three in Southeast Oregon. 

BLM is making amendments to its Southeastern Oregon Resource Management Plan, and a comment period is open until August 28th for people who have ideas and issues on land use.  Brent Grasty, BLM Vale District planner, visits with details of the process.  Malheur Field Manager Pat Ryan and Assistant Malheur Field Manager Renee Straub also join in.
