The recommendation for this WSA is to designate 17,150 acres of BLM land and 1,390 acres of State land as wilderness. This alternative is considered to be the environmentally preferable alternative as it would result in the least change in the natural environment over the long term. The entire 17,150 acres of federal land and 1,390 acres of state land within the WSA are recommended for wilderness designation and are shown on the Bobcat Draw Badlands WSA map. The state lands would be recommended for acquisition to enhance the manageability of the area as wilderness.
