The California National Historic Trail traverses the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Elko District across hundreds of miles of public lands. But how does the BLM manage these portions of the Trail?

Join BLM Archaeologist Dayna Reale as she discusses the techniques and methods the BLM uses to identify, evaluate, and properly manage historic trails on public lands, from metal detectors to historic journals. Learn how this important resource is managed, and how you can be involved in preserving and understanding the California Trail.

This program is part of a series of programs that celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System. The National Trails System Act protects thousands of miles of trails and waterways. For more information visit
