The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is responsible for monitoring, managing and conserving resources on over 14 million acres of public land in New Mexico. (That's almost five million more than the US Forest Service manages!)

Learn how these two women deal with this enormous responsibility when BLM New Mexico State Botanist, Zoe Davidson, and BLM Plant Conservation Program (PCP) Specialist, Ella Samuel, present "BLM New Mexico Plant Conservation & Restoration Program."

The PCP oversees the Seeds of Success crews that gather wild seeds for restoration efforts and oversees the Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring (AIM) crews that monitor vegetation using consistent and efficient methods.

The program also monitors and manages special status plant species and leads pollinator monitoring initiatives to better understand those crucial pollinator-plant relations.
