- Facilitating the conservation and restoration of rangelands to combat climate change.
- Soils mapping and development of ecological site descriptions.
- Engagement of community members and other stakeholders, through mentoring, training, and educational programs.

- Restoring legacy disturbances
- Support restoration of landscapes improving rangelands through grazing management on the ground projects including vegetation restoration treatments, and grazing management structures, and soil resource management.
- Decision support for adaptive management
- To better support land management decisions regarding grazing and other range management treatments, soil management, and invasive species, the BLM will place a priority on collecting data through the use of consistent, comparable, and common indicators, consistent methods, and an unbiased sampling framework which will allow for analyses that are repeatable and comparable across a region, and decisions based on science and data that are legally defensible.
