Title: BLM National Areas of Critical Environmental Concern Designated Polygons
Abstract: This is an aggregate national dataset describing the geographic boundaries of the ACEC within the BLM managed public lands. The designated ACECs are "areas within the public lands where special management attention is required to protect and prevent irreparable damage to important historic, cultural, or scenic values, fish and wildlife resources or other natural systems of processes, or to protect life and safety from natural hazards."
Purpose: These data are used when making management decisions and are intended to assist in the protection of the resources the ACEC was designated to protect. It documents where ACECs are located.
