Session 6: Orchestrating Tradition and Change: Emphasizing Conservation in the BLM

Conservation asks the people of the present to respect the interests of the people of the future. Asking citizens of a society that seems to be in a constant rush to think seriously about time and its passage will require creative and innovative strategies, and also down-to-earth examples. This session will explore BLM’s unique approach to conservation in a multiple use environment, with particular attention to the National Landscape Conservation System.
