While hiking last fall in Marlette Lake located in the Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park Rochelle Francisco, Public Affairs Specialist for BLM-Nevada discovered freshly cut wooden logs on the side of the road.
“Once we zeroed in on a Las Vegas destination, we knew we wanted a beautiful venue that was outdoor and timeless. We will always have a reason to visit our favorite coordinates,” said Linda and Edward Cavazos.
We met on match.com (yes, it really works). Our first date was December 17, 2012 at an outdoor coffee shop on beautiful Lake Austin surrounded by nature and whimsical Christmas lights. This four hour magical date turned into a sprint to the altar. A few 2013 races we ran together: Scholtzky’s Bun Run 10k (Austin), Corpus Christi Beach to Bay Relay, Harbor Half (Corpus Christi), San Antonio Rock N Roll ½ marathon. If we’re outside and not running, we’re on our bikes (especially during festivals i.e. SXSW) or taking a dip at Barton Springs.

Social Media Highlights
The BLM shared additional Winter Bucket List locations on social media last week.
Each day of winter, the BLM’s social media accounts will feature a location
ready-made for everyone’s bucket list - for spectacular winter scenery, unique
features and events, and even a few warmer locations for a winter getaway.
Follow the bucket list series on My Public Lands Tumblr and My Public Lands Instagram. You also can download the photos from our Winter Bucket
List album on My Public Lands Flickr.
The BLM last week launched a #LOVEINNATURE
social media campaign. More than 3,000
species of wildlife call BLM-managed lands home - a backyard of more than 245
million acres in 23 states, dispersed over some of the Nation’s most
ecologically-diverse and essential habitat. In celebration of Valentine’s Day,
the BLM has posted #LOVEINNATURE
Valentine’s Day cards on Pinterest – the downloadable collection features
some of the cutest wildlife on your public lands!
BLM California’s Bishop Field
Office recently partnered with the Bristlecone Chapter of the California Native
Plant Society and the Bodie Hills Conservation Partnership group to plant
sagebrush and bitterbrush seedlings in the footprint of the Indian Fire. The
Indian Fire burned more than 12,000 acres in Mono County, California, in August
2012. Much of the burned area was composed of mature sagebrush and bitterbrush
habitat and was used by greater sage grouse and many other species of wildlife.
These new seedlings will become the future seed source for more re-colonization
of native shrubs the area. View the full internal story, republished on Interior’s website.
