Buck Mountain Temporary Grazing Project
The Emigrant Creek Ranger District, is soliciting comments for a 15-day scoping period on the Buck Mountain Temporary Grazing Project. This project proposal is to approve a minor, short-term (one year or less) special use (temporary grazing) of National Forest System lands within the Buck Mountain Allotment. The allotment is located approximately 38 miles northeast of Burns, Oregon, and lies within Harney County. It consists of approximately 41,479 acres of National Forest System lands administered by the Emigrant Creek Ranger District of the Malheur National Forest. This action is needed to provide temporary forage for a permittee that will be displaced because of the Dairy prescribed fire on the Emigrant Creek Ranger District.
The legal description of the project area is:
Township 21 South, Range 24 East, sec. 1, 11-15, 22-27 and 34-36
Township 21 South, Range 25 East, sec. 1-35
Township 21 South, Range 26 East, sec. 6,7,18 and 19
Township 20 South, Range 25 East, sec. 21-23 and 26-36
The proposed action includes grazing of 200 cow/calf pairs for 38 days. Livestock use will occur approximately May 15th to June 21st. Dates may vary depending on completion of analysis and range readiness. The Forest Plan has determined the capability and suitability of the area and established programmatic direction including goals, objectives, standards, guidelines, and monitoring requirements.
I anticipate this project to be Categorically Excluded from documentation in an EIS or EA pursuant to 40 CFR 1508.4 and 36 CFR 220.6(d)8 approval, modification, or continuation of minor, short-term (one year or less) special uses of National Forest System lands.
A more detailed project proposal package can be obtained from the Malheur National Forest by contacting Ben Goodin at 541-573-4314 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your comments can help us design a better project, make us aware of issues and generally assist the Forest in doing a more thorough job of planning.
Written or verbal comments must be submitted to me by April 29, 2015. Please submit your comments to:
