You are welcome Darren. Similar data should be available from BLM for each state.

the BLM (bureau of Land Management) also takes over land that has been designated as a Monument to be protected and leases it to big business which often destroys that precious land

Glad JL you mention SOME of the NEGATIVE IMPACT that BLM has, like on environment and wildlife!

The fact that recreation had far more jobs and more economic benefit than timber and grazing combined for OR captured my attention first. Oftentimes local communities are invited to the table for planning discussions and proposals--so being armed with these kind of data could help in the preservation aspects.
