|DOI-BLM-CAC-070-2015-025-CX||CX||Cultural resources||Saline Valley Salt Tram Summit Station and Tenderís Cabin Fire Safety Hazard Reduction: Non-Wilderness - selectively remove and thin pinyon pine, mountain mahogany and tall shrubs located immediately adjacent to, and between, the historic Saline Valley Salt Tram Summit Station and Tenderís Cabin in the Inyo Mountains, Inyo County, California. The project is designed to reduce the fire safety hazard around these historic structures by creating defensible space that would increase firefighter safety associated with protection of these structures in the event of a natural or human caused wildfire. The entire proposes project area is located within the 30 foot cherry-stemmed route buffer of the Cerro Gordo-Swansea loop route and outside of the Inyo Mountains Wilderness.||The proposed project area is located approximately seven miles north of the abandoned mining town of Cerro Gordo on the Cerro Gordo-Swansea loop route in the Southern Inyo Management Area; T. 15 S., R. 38 E., Sections 28 & 29, MDBM.||Hannah Fortney|
|DOI-BLM-CAC-070-2015-023-CX||CX||Range||The Dynamo Pond Meadow Restoration Project is needed to maintain and improve the meadow complex located around Dynamo Pond and along Green Creek. Meadows are a limited resource within the Eastern Sierra region and these ecosystems are important to wildlife for food, nesting, cover, etc. The Dynamo Pond area has accumulated surface and ladder fuels, especially Lodgepole pine, over the past 80 years due to disruptions to the natural low intensity fire regime.
Previous restoration efforts to maintain and improve the meadow complex have been successful, with the removal of Lodgepole saplings and invasive weeds. Also maintaining roads and trails has eliminated vehicular travel through the meadow, allowing meadow grass and willow species to recover.
The purpose of the Dynamo Pond Meadow Restoration Project is to restore the meadow complex around dynamo pond. The project includes the removal of encroaching Lodgepole saplings from the meadow complex, removal of invasive weeds (e.g. mullein), and armoring of trails and parking areas.
