Cottonwood RMP Amendment for Domestic Sheep Grazing


 

The BLM is preparing a supplemental environmental impact statement (EIS) to support  decisions regarding domestic sheep and goat grazing in the resource management plan (RMP) for the Cottonwood Field Office.

The Record of Decision for the 2009 Cottonwood RMP excluded decisions on domestic sheep and goat grazing on four allotments that overlap or occur in the vicinity of bighorn sheep habitat along the Salmon River, east of Riggins, Idaho, in Idaho County. 

Public comment on the Draft RMP Amendment and Supplemental EIS closed on August 7, 2014.

A limited number of printed copies and compact discs of the Draft RMP Amendment and Supplemental EIS are available.  You may request one by sending email to BLM_ID_SheepSEIS@blm.gov, or by calling (208) 769-5059.
