Last Updated: February 20, 2010
The Bureau of Land Management’s Las Cruces District Office will prepare a Resource Management Plan for the Prehistoric Trackways National Monument that will guide future management of the 5,280-acre area northwest of Las Cruces.
The area affected by the Plan for the new monument is the home of the Chile Canyon Trail System. This nationally renowned group of extreme 4WD trails have been the location of the famous Chile Challenge 4WD event for the last 15 years.
A public scoping process opened January 5th in order to solicit public comments and identify issues (e.g., natural resource and public use issues) anticipated within the Monument, which was created under the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009.
A public scoping meeting is scheduled in Las Cruces on January 26th to present information about the effort and receive input from the public.
The formal Scoping comment period will close on February 10th.
