Keno Planning Effort
The Keno Landscape Environmental Assessment (EA) analysis area consists of over 54,000 acres, of which over 14,000 are managed by the BLM. Silvicultural and fuels reduction treatments are proposed on approximately 4,000 of these acres. These treatments consist of timber sales, understory (precommercial) thinning, riparian thinning, conifer planting, slashbusting and prescribed burning. Some transportation management and recreation projects are proposed as well. Geographically, these lands are located south of the town of Keno; between Highway 97, Highway 66, the Upper Klamath River, and the Oregon-California border. The Keno Landscape is located in the Butte Valley, John C. Boyle Reservoir/Klamath River, Lake Ewauna/Klamath River, and Lower Klamath Lake watersheds. Much of the landscape is located within the boundaries of the Keno Wildland Urban Interface (WUI).
A new online WebMap is located under the "Maps" tab. This map displays the analysis area and proposed treatment units for the Keno Environmental Assessment being conducted by the Klamath Falls Resource Area - Lakeview District Bureau of Land Management. This map is a trial project to determine the efficacy of using web mapping technology to facilitate public input to the NEPA process.
The public review timeframe is between 2/01/2012 and 3/02/2012.
