The land described is hereby segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, pending disposition of this action or 270 days from the date of publication of this notice, whichever occurs first. This land is not essential to any bureau of Land Management program and no resource needed by the public will be lost through the transfer to private ownership. Conveyance is consistent with current BLM land use planning and is in the public interest.
The land is being offered for direct sale to the Portola Cemetery District for the continued operation of a cemetery.

The patent, when issued, may contain certain reservations to the United States. Detailed information concerning these reservations, as well as specific conditions of sale, are available for review at the Eagle Lake Field Office, 2950 Riverside Drive, Susanville, CA 96130.
