Rangeland Water Development May 1954
We uncovered these photos from the early days of the BLM's Burns District.
Located in eastern Oregon, the Burns District manages over three million acres of public lands starting at the Oregon-Nevada border and heading up to the Blue Mountains.
Some highlights include Steens Moutain, the Donner and Blitzen National Wild and Scenic River, and the Diamond Craters Outstanding Natural Area.
In total, Burns features 23 Wilderness Study Areas which protect the natural values of over one million acres.
