The 15-member Council provides recommendations to the Secretary of the Interior concerning the planning and management of the public land resources located within the BLM's California Desert District and offers advice on the implementation of the comprehensive, long-range plan for management, use, development, and protection of the public lands within the California Desert Conservation Area.

All Council meetings and field trips are open to the public, but the public must provide their own transportation, meals, and beverages.

The field trip will include visits to the Cronese Lake, the Rasor Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area, and the Avawatz Mountains. The Saturday public meeting will include a discussion of implementation of the John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act (Dingell Act), the West Mojave Route Network Project, and off-highway vehicle recreation as they relate to the previous day's field trip.

The Saturday meeting will also include discussions on implementation of the Dingell Act in the California Desert District, updates from Council members and the BLM California Desert District Manager, and time for public comment at the beginning and end of the meeting as well as during various presentations.

While the Saturday meeting is tentatively scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the meeting could conclude prior to 4:00 p.m. should the Council conclude its presentations and discussions. Therefore, members of the public interested in a particular agenda item or discussion should schedule their arrival accordingly.
