The 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 tours are open to the public, but the public must provide their own transportation, meals, and beverages.

The field tour will include visits to Hunter's Camp, Milpitas Wilderness, and the Palo Verde Cultural site. The Saturday public meeting will include an update on Dingell Act implementation activities, the role and function of Council subgroups, desert tortoise management, Devil's Canyon access, fire and fuels operations, a discussion on Secretarial Orders, and a briefing on the Desert Spring study. Members of the public will have the opportunity to make public comments during the meeting.
