BCHA Signs 5-Year Agreement with Bureau of Land Management


Earlier this year, BCHA’s Executive Director Jim McGarvey signed a 5-year MOU with the BLM. The agreement encourages BLM field offices throughout the Western U.S. to partner with local BCH chapters for service and trail maintenance projects. It also encourages the BLM to work with BCHA and The Wilderness Society in efforts to promote and expand a system of sustainable hiking and horseback riding trails on BLM-managed lands.

To read the full agreement, here is a copy of the PDF.

For those that don’t know what a MOU is, it is a formal agreement between two or more parties. Companies and organizations can use MOUs to establish official partnerships. MOUs are not legally binding but they carry a degree of seriousness and mutual respect, stronger than a gentlemen’s agreement. BCHA also has outstanding MOUs with the US Forest Service and the National Parks.

    The link to the MOU does not work. BLM California asked that BCHC develop an MOU with just the work in California is called out. Thought that the National agreement would be a good starting point so really need the MOU please.
