NEPA #: OR-08-025-030  Environmental Assessment / FONSI
Document Publish Date: 2/20/2009
Summary: The Three Rivers Resource Area, Burns District, has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze the Proposed Action to modify current grazing practices within Tired Horse Pasture by adjusting the timing and distribution of livestock grazing to ensure continuance of achieving Standards for Rangeland Health. Based on utilization records, a need exists to improve livestock distribution and utilization patterns. Currently, the eastern half of Tired Horse Butte Pasture gets more use than the western side. This is due to larger areas of lower elevation, more gradual slopes, and more area with south and west facing aspects allowing for more sunlight.
