More than 3,000 species of wildlife call BLM-managed lands home - that’s a backyard of more than 245 million acres in 23 states, dispersed over some of the Nation’s most ecologically-diverse and essential habitat.

Parents, teachers and everyone young at heart, you can download and share Valentine’s Day cards that feature some of the cutest wildlife on your public lands!  Pictured here, wildilfe at Piedras Blancas Light Station Outstanding Natural Area in California, BLM Photo.

Romance isn’t just for Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day can be celebrated all year long on public lands. To celebrate her birthday, and as a romantic gesture, Steve Janzen, civil engineer for the BLM Idaho Falls District took his wife, Brandy Janzen, BLM natural resource specialist, hiking to Deadman Lake, Montana near Leadore, Idaho. The 14 mile hiking loop started off amazing with beautiful vistas and great fishing… until the massive torrents of rain came late in the afternoon.
