• 360 waterfall teaser -- Lower South Fork Clackamas Falls

    541 views 4 months ago
    Stand at the base of the 60-foot-tall Lower South Fork Clackamas Falls in this new 360-degree video. Look up at the sky, scroll behind you to see the South Fork Clackamas Wild and Scenic River, or even look down with your virtual reality headset into the clear Oregon water!

    The Lower South Fork Clackamas Falls is below the subdued and forested confluence of the South Fork and Memaloose Creek. The large pool at the bottom opens up into a shallow riverbed dotted with rocks where spring chinook and coho salmon fry can be seen. Winter and summer steelhead also call the south fork home beneath the falls.

    In 2009, 4.2 miles of the South Fork Clackamas were designated as wild and scenic by Congress. Only six-tenths of that river span is officially managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The surrounding land is rugged and steep, with elevations ranging from 2,200 feet down to 600 feet.

  • San Juan Islands Play all

    Situated in the northern reaches of Washington State's Puget Sound, the San Juan Islands are a uniquely beautiful archipelago of over 450 islands, rocks, and pinnacles. The new San Juan Islands National Monument encompasses approximately 1,000 acres of land spread across many of these rocks and islands and managed by the Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management. Drawing visitors from around the world, this is a landscape of unmatched contrasts, where forests seem to spring from gray rock and distant, snow-capped peaks provide the backdrop for sandy beaches. The San Juan Islands National Monument is a trove of scientific and historic treasures, a refuge for an array of wildlife, and a classroom for generations of Americans.

    On March 25, 2013, President Obama signed a proclamation to designate the San Juan Islands National Monument. The proclamation states that, "The protection of these lands in the San Juan Islands will maintain their historical and cultural significance and enhance their unique and varied natural and scientific resources, for the benefit of all Americans."

    The Bureau of Land Management's National Conservation Lands, also known as the National Landscape Conservation System, contain some of the West's most spectacular landscapes. It includes over 886 federally recognized areas and approximately 27 million acres that include Wilderness areas.

    With the passage of the Omnibus Public Land Act in March 2009, the BLM now manages eight Wilderness Areas across nearly 247,000 acres in Oregon. The BLM also manages one Wilderness Area in Washington covering 7,142 acres. In addition, the BLM currently protects wilderness values on 82 Wilderness Study Areas (WSA) and five Instant Study Areas in Oregon totaling more than 2.6 million acres and one WSA in Washington totaling 5,557 acres.

    Wilderness is Congressionally-designated piece land that is managed in accordance with the Wilderness Act of 1964 to "...secure for the American people of present and future generations the benefits of an enduring resource of wilderness." Wilderness areas are places where natural processes take precedent; areas managed so that nature remains substantially unchanged by human use. Rugged trails provide the only access into wilderness, and travel is restricted to foot or horseback.

  • Wild Horse and Burro Play all

    The Bureau of Land Management manages wild horses and burros on public rangelands as mandated by the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971, as amended. The BLM protects, manages, and controls wild horses and burros to ensure that healthy herds thrive on healthy rangelands. If an overpopulation of wild horses and burros exists on public lands, the BLM gathers excess animals and offers them to the general public for adoption. The BLM presents these animals at adoption events and at BLM facilities throughout the United States. In addition to placing wild horses and burros into good homes through the adoption program, the BLM has direct sale authority that allows the agency to directly sell animals that are more than 10 years old and those younger that have been passed over for adoption at least three times. These animals are located in the BLM's long- and short-term holding facilities, such as Oregon's Wild Horse Corral Facility in the Burns District. Oregon has arguably the most prized wild horses available on public lands featuring the Kiger mustangs. Oregon's wild horses are known for their quality and color and are popular with adopters throughout the United States.

    BLM manages 17 Herd Management Areas (HMA) in southeast Oregon and co-manages one Wild Horse Territory (Murders Creek - 75 percent Forest Service and 25 percent BLM) with the Malheur National Forest. Oregon herd numbers increase annually by twenty percent on the average. Decisions to gather excess animals are based on rangeland monitoring studies, availability of forage and water, and census of wild horse numbers. Normally, three to five of Oregon’s herds are gathered annually to remove excess animals and balance population numbers with the capability of the range to sustain them.
