CALIFORNIA – Announcing Johnson Valley Shared Use Area Resource Management Group Meeting

Johnson Valley Shared Use Area

Representatives from the Bureau of Land Management Barstow Field Office and the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms will host a Resource Management Group meeting from 10 to 11 a.m., April 6, at the Yucca Room at the Yucca Valley Community Center, 57090 Twentynine Palms Highway, Yucca Valley. The meeting is open to the public.

Representatives will be available to answer questions and discuss the Shared Use Area of the Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area.

As previously announced, the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area will remain open to the public from August 1-30 and will not be used for military training. The closure of the Shared Use Area for military use was determined to be unnecessary after the Marine Corps revised the scope of training to be conducted in August 2019. Training conducted in August 2019 will utilize ranges on the installation, including the land acquired through the land expansion. All training will occur within Combat Center boundaries.

For more information about this public meeting, contact Katrina Symons, Barstow Field Manager, at 760-252-6004.

As always, call or email if you have any questions or comments.
