The Bureau of Land Management in Alaska (BLM-Alaska) has a multiple-use mission of sustaining the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.

BLM-Alaska presently manages over 75 million acres of federal public land, or nearly one-quarter of the state. These acres include some of the most varied and formidable terrain in the world -- rugged glaciers and mountain ranges, arctic tundra, boreal forests, and massive rivers.
BLM-Alaska focuses on land transfers and land ownership, land-use planning, management of the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, oversight of the 800-mile Trans-Alaska Pipeline System, and fire management. It is also the lead agency managing the Iditarod National Historic Trail, and manages the 730-acre Campbell Tract and its Campbell Creek Science Center in Anchorage.
BLM-Alaska has two district offices in Anchorage and Fairbanks, as well as, five field offices (Arctic, Eastern Interior, Central Yukon, Glennallen, and Anchorage). The BLM also has field stations in Barrow and Kotzebue and a summer office in the historic gold mining community of Chicken.
