Experimental Stewardship Steering Committee Meets Jan. 13 in Cedarville

Varied public land natural resource topics will be on the agenda when the Modoc-Washoe Experimental Stewardship Steering Committee meets Thursday, Jan 13, at 9a.m., at the Bureau of Land Management Surprise Field Office, 602 Cressler St. in Cedarville.  The meeting is open to the public.

The committee will discuss the effects of the Ruby Pipeline project on livestock grazing permittees, consider funding opportunities, hear a presentation on the use of Facebook, and hear a report on the Nevada Cowhead grazing allotment.

Technical review teams will report on grazing fee credit, and work in the Emerson/Cottnwood and Bare areas.  Committee members will consider a proposal for technical review team work in the Tuledad and Home Camp grazing allotments.

The committee will hear an update on wild horse management at Sand Creek and in the Painted Point area.  Members will also hear updates form the BLM, Modoc National Forest and other member agencies.

The steering committee advises the BLM’s Surprise Field Office and the Modoc National Forest’s Warner Mountain Ranger District on natural resource issues and livestock grazing management on public lands.  One of three such committees established by Congress, the group works on a full consensus basis to promote innovative range management approaches and provide incentives for excellence.

Members represent broad interests, including livestock grazing permit holders, California and Nevada state wildlife agencies, the BLM, Forest Service, resource conservation districts, timber interests, environmental groups, sporting groups and local government.
