The mission at Fort Ord is to work with partners to protect rare plants and animals on this former Army Base in the beautiful Monterey Bay region, and to provide top-notch, environmentally-sensitive recreation oppotunities. BLM currently manages 7,200 acres of the former Fort Ord. At some point, we will receive an additional 8,000 acres. There are 86 miles of multi-use trails open for non-motorized sports. We are surrounded by urban interface. Some homes have gates that open directly onto the BLM property. Many of the students that particpate in these programs, already visit the property with their families. Educating the visitors while they are children, creates a healthy lifestyle for the visitors as well as the environment.
