The Bureau of Public Lands Runs an Insanely Gorgeous Instagram (30 Photos)

While the National Park Service is usually in the spotlight when it comes to our nation’s natural areas, did you know that the Bureau of Land Management maintains four times more public lands? That right, BLM manages over 274 million acres, mostly located in the western United States. That’s an incredible 12.5% of the entire country’s land mass. Not only that, but they manage over 700 million acres of mineral rights beneath the surface.

With a budget just over $1 billion, BLM employs 11,600 permanent and 2,000 part-time employees and generates $6.2 billion in revenue annually. They are a very important agency in terms of economic as well as ecological reasons.

To get their story out, BLM maintains an amazing Instagram account. Their passionate and dedicated staff share photos that really showcase the beauty of BLM-managed lands. Below are out 25 favorites but make sure to follow BLM at @MyPublicLands on Instagram to see many more.
