Unit 18 Closure

Comments Off on Unit 18 Closure

IMPORTANT UNIT 18 – Just a quick update, deep in this year’s Department of Defense appropriations bill is a provision that would basically close 300,000 acres of BLM land in GMU 18 in the so-called Northern Extension of White Sands Missile Range. For us that means it would be off limits for any recreation. We are tracking it and gathering all the facts but in the meantime please stay tuned and be prepared to start being heard.

Below is a map and this is a link to the actual PDF.  Search for “White Sands”, the important infor starts around page 891.
