Interior Announces Land Management Improvements

Bureau headquarters will leave Colorado and move to D.C.

Last week, the Department of the Interior announced that it would be taking steps to restructure the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to better manage federally held lands. The biggest announcement was that the BLM headquarters would be moved back to Washington, D.C., to better give it access to government employees and other resources. The office in Grand Junction, Colorado, will continue to be an office for BLM. 

Secretary Deb Haaland Expressed the importance of the improvements saying, “The Bureau of Land Management is critical to the nation’s efforts to address the climate crisis, expand public access to our public lands, and preserve our nation’s shared outdoor heritage. It is imperative that the bureau have the appropriate structure and resources to serve the American public.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That Secretary Haaland would seek the Lord’s wisdom to lead the Department.
  • For Interior officials as they steward the nation’s public lands.
  • That the move of the bureau headquarters to D.C. would be efficient and effective.
