2021 Bureau of Land Management Employee Survey Report
A New Era for the Bureau of Land Management
In January and February of 2021, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) conducted a series of in-depth phone interviews with current and former Bureau of Land Management (BLM) employees from nine states from Headquarters, State Offices and Field Offices. The purpose of this survey was to identify steps the Biden administration can take to strengthen the institutional capacity of the BLM to better address conservation and climate change goals.
Right now, BLM is facing a dramatic pendulum swing as it transitions from the aggressive extractive resource agenda of the Trump administration to the ambitious climate and conservation agenda of the Biden administration. To achieve these current goals, the new administration and Congress will need to address important governance issues within the BLM.
