Office Location: Burns
Resource Area: Three Rivers
NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-B050-2013-0005-EA  Environmental Assessment
Document Publish Date: 12/11/2012
Summary: The Burns BLM has received questions about relief forage for permittees whose allotments burned. The permittee on the Upton Mountain Allotment requested that BLM reevaluate the carrying capacity of the allotment and activate suspended use. Providing relief forage would be a way to assess the carrying capacity and impacts of increased use and provide some assistance to burned out permittees. The purposes of the action are to determine whether additional grazing use can be authorized on the Upton Mountain Allotment and conform to the Three Rivers RMP, the Upton Mountain Allotment AMP, the Oregon/Washington Standards for Rangeland Health, BLM's grazing regulations, and all other applicable laws and policies.
