What is CalPLC?
The California Public Lands Council (CalPLC) represents the more-than-700 public lands permittees who graze cattle and sheep on lands managed by the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and National Park Service throughout the state of California. CalPLC seeks to further CCA’s Federal Lands policies through targeted outreach to federal land managers and public lands permittees within the state of California.
In recent years, CalPLC has executed this mission through a series of regional meetings, convening local permittees along with state- and regional-level agency leadership to identify, discuss, and tackle issues that are of particular importance to local permittees. Through this format, CalPLC has been able to identify action items that permittees, CCA staff, and federal land managers can take to help overcome impediments to public lands grazing.
