The open house, which also honors the workers who help manage the lands, is scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4 at the district office, 2878 Addison Ave. E., Twin Falls.

“It's a real privilege to serve with the BLM in this part of Idaho,” said District Manager Mike Courtney. “A lot of people in southern Idaho genuinely care about our public lands, and they make our jobs easier.”

It’s the perfect time to host an open house about public lands. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the passage of the BLM's bedrock legislation, the Federal Lands Policy and Management Act of 1976.
