Integrated Resource Plans

Integrated Resource Plans outline the land and resource management intent for a planning area based on a landscape assessment. These assessments:

  • Include the resource, physical and biological characteristics and social values within a planning area.
  • Identify objectives for long-term management of the area to promote responsible use of the land in the future.
  • Describe the type of activities that are compatible with this land and resource management direction. For example, public land may be designated for recreation, grazing, oil and gas, forestry or other uses.
