This Draft Land Management Plan (DLMP) and Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) addresses future management options for approximately 1,867,800 acres of the San Juan National Forest, administered by the USFS; and approximately 500,000 surface acres and 300,000 acres of subsurface mineral estate administered by the BLM.

The planning area is located in southwestern Colorado, in Archuleta, Conejos, Dolores, Hinsdale, La Plata, Mineral, Montezuma, Montrose, Rio Grande, San Juan, and San Miguel Counties. The BLM San Juan Field Office and the San Juan National Forest are managed under a combined “Service First” partnership. The San Juan Public Lands Center (SJPLC) is the joint USFS/BLM Service First office responsible for the management of these public lands and resources. Information provided by the public; BLM and USFS personnel; other Federal, State, and local governmental agencies; Native American tribal agencies and organizations; and special interest and community organizations has been used to develop and analyze the four land management alternatives and the oil and gas leasing alternatives considered in detail in this document.
