Missoula BLM issues decision on Chamberlain-Wales projects

MISSOULA (Feb. 14, 2014) – The Bureau of Land Management’s Missoula Field Office has completed a Decision Record and Finding of No Significant Impact for a subset of actions proposed and analyzed in the Chamberlain-Wales Resource Management Projects Environmental Assessment.

The Decision is to implement tree planting, cone collection, thinning for snowshoe hare research, culvert removal, road drainage repair and maintenance, and road obliteration.

These actions will ideally begin this year as funds are available. The treatment activities will occur on BLM-managed lands in and near the Chamberlain and Wales Creek watersheds south and west of Ovando.

The Environmental Assessment and Decision Record may be viewed on the BLM website

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2014, the BLM generated $5.2 billion in receipts from public lands.
