DOI-BLM-CAC-070-2015-0011DNARecreationThe Project would permanently close to motorized use, and the return of land, plant communities and plant covers to conditions comparable to those of surrounding lands, multiple roads and parking areas in sagebrush habitat and in a seasonal wet alkali meadow. The purpose of the Project is to restore natural resource systems damaged by vehicle use. Treatments would include barricading motorized access by the placement of large native rocks; fencing; vertical mulching; seeding of native vegetation; interruptive and educational panels of BLM’s actions along with public outreach.

This would be accomplished by delineating with boulders an existing authorized parking area (approximately 400 sq. ft.) that is denuded of vegetation adjacent to Shark’s Fin Road and closing and barricading the unauthorized routes and parking areas by strategically placing boulders to prevent vehicle entry and planting of seedlings in damaged areas.Alabama Hills, Inyo County California; Bishop RMP Owens Valley Management Area, NW ¼ section of the SE ¼ section 25, T15S, R36E MDMRich Williams

DOI-BLM-CAC-070-2015-0009DNARecreationThe Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Bishop Field Office proposes to close an ancillary motorized vehicle route that is fragmenting habitat and destroying vegetation because vehicles create parking areas and camp along the road. These activities also have the potential to damage cultural resources present in the vicinity. The duplicate ancillary route, which total approximately 10,000 square feet (0.22 acres) in surface disturbance, would be closed by strategically placing large native boulders using a backhoe to create a barricade and prevent vehicles from access the road and the entire road tread would be de-compacted utilizing a JD Motor Grader.

DOI-BLM-CAC-070-2014-0026CXRecreationThe proposed action would repair and maintain off-highway vehicle (OHV) routes of travel that have been identified as open in the High Desert OHV Management Plan (1991) and the Interagency Vehicle Access Management Plan (1996). The route maintenance is necessary because recreational use of the routes combined with natural forces, such as rain, wind and snow has caused the routes to degrade. This is causing soil erosion, loose rocks along the route, damage to vegetation and an unsafe condition. Approximately four miles of route would be maintained. The maintenance along the OHV routes of travel would meet Bishop Field Office’s Resource Management Plan (RMP 1993) General Policies and Area Manager’s Guidelines by providing for recreational opportunities and protecting natural and cultural resources.Tungsten Hills, 6 miles west of Bishop, California; Bishop RMP Owens Valley Management Area; T6S, R32E, Sections 1, 2, 35, 36; Mount Diablo Meridian.

DOI-BLM-CAC070-2014-033-DNADNARecreationThe proposed action would close two motorized routes, which total approximately 12,000 square feet that exist within the historic Manzanar reservoir site. The purpose of the proposed action is to protect the reservoir and surrounding area from damage by off-highway vehicles (OHV) use and to create a safe non-motorized area for visitors to view this historic site.
