The McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area was established on October 24, 2000, when the President signed the Colorado Canyons National Conservation Area and Black Ridge Wilderness Act of 2000 (Act). The Act also required that an Advisory Council be established to provide advice in the preparation and implementation of the Resource Management Plan. The name of the NCA was congressionally changed at the end of 2004 from Colorado Canyons National Conservation Area to McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area (MCNCA). The Resource Management Plan has been completed and is now being implemented.
The agenda topics for the May meeting are:
