In 2000, Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt linked special landscapes designated by the President or Congress into one conservation system named the National Landscape Conservation System, or National Conservation Lands. As a part of the 15th anniversary celebration this year, our National Conservation Lands team took over the BLM’s national social media accounts on the 15th of each month.
Throughout the year, the monthly takeovers featured stunning landscapes, science and history, unique wildlife, and more. Tomorrow, we’re kicking off a Twelve Days of National Conservation Lands – a recap of the twelve #conservationlands15 takeovers. Follow us into the New Year for the entire collection of “Top 15” lists, and prepare your 2016 bucket list along the way!
