As you may have heard, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), who administers Burning Man's event permit, has published a draft Environmental Impact Statement analyzing the environmental impacts we need to mitigate should we decide to grow the event. According to the Burning Man organization, "there are no current plans to grow the event," and these proposed mitigations "don’t factor in our 28-year operational track record and commitment to environmental protection, and could kill the event outright."

Burning Man is calling on the community to submit public comments to the BLM in response to the draft EIS. They have provided a wealth of resources and information on the Burning Man Journal so you can educate yourself on the accuracy of BLM's facts and recommendations, what Burning Man already does to protect the environment and mitigate our effects on the nearby communities, and how you can thoughtfully and productively craft a response to the draft EIS.

BLM has requested public comment and we encourage everyone to review the Draft EIS and submit informed, substantive comments through the BLM’s comment form or by emailing (be sure to copy us at

If you are unable to comment online you can mail comments to:
Attn: Mark Hall, Bureau of Land Management, 5100 E Winnemucca Blvd, Winnemucca, NV 89445.

You may submit multiple comments on different issues or include many issues in a single comment. More details are on the BLM website.

The deadline for public comment is April 29.
