PNW-SRM MEETINGS

Historical Overview of BLM and Public Lands Grazing in the U.S.

November 3, 2022, 3-4 p.m.

Presented by Ken Visser, who retired in 2016 from his 37-year career as a Rangeland Management Specialist with the BLM.  

Quarterly Presentation hosted by WA Chapter

Overview:  This talk is an outgrowth of research Visser did as a BLM HQ Range Management Specialist to support the Justice Department’s defense before the Supreme Court of the case  Public Lands Council vs. Babbitt (528 U.S. 728 (2000)) which defended “range reform” regulations that the Department of Interior promulgated in 1996.  The US Government prevailed in this case 9-0.   These regulations govern grazing administration on BLM lands and are largely still in effect today.
