Bureau of Land Managment

The Friends of Indian Creek have been working closely with the BLM at Monticello. The BLM are very supportive of the Friends of Indian Creek, and want to ensure the success of the management plan as much as the climbers. The BLM wants to keep Indian Creek the way it is. By working together, we can achieve just that.
