The Ecosystem planning area encompasses the Muleshoe Cooperative Management Area (CMA) which is jointly managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Forest Service (FS), and The Nature Conservancy (TNC). The 57,500 acres comprise major portions of the Redfield, Hot Springs, and Cherry Springs watersheds. Included within the planning boundary are the Redfield Canyon Wilderness and Hot Springs Watershed Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), administered by the BLM, and a portion of the Galiuro Wilderness, administered by the FS.
