Environmental Assessment,Finding of No Significant Impact DOI-BLM-OR-B060-2009-0078-EA Planning Completed
This Environmental Assessment (EA) describes potential impacts of a trail and joining features in the Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and Protection Area (CMPA). The Proposed Action would take place in the Wildland Juniper Management Area (WJMA) located approximately 72 miles south of Burns, Oregon, on Steens Mountain. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is now proposing to build two trailheads and 1.2 miles of trails, extend existing pullouts, and install additional interpretive panels within the WJMA to provide visitors the opportunity to view juniper expansion and experimental treatments.

In order to meet the education and interpretation elements expressed in the Steens Act, the BLM proposes a short network of interpretive trails including two to six informative panels and markers coinciding with a brochure and extension of existing pullouts. The trails would allow visitors a close view of juniper experimental treatments and their success in restoring native vegetation.
