Principles of Wilderness Management in the California Deserts
It is the intent of the Federal land managers of the California Desert to secure for the American people of present and generations an enduring resource of wilderness, composed of those Federal lands in the California Desert designated by congress. The California Desert Protection Act designated 69 new wilderness areas, approximately 3.6 million acres, administered by the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, and the Fish and Wildlife Service. The Federal land managers will commit to develop common proceedures that apply to all wilderness areas managed by each Federal agency, to the greatest extent legally permissible, as outlined in the following chapters.
