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).
The public scoping period was between 2/01/2012 and 3/02/2012. Scoping comments received were used to develop alternatives and help guide resource analysis. Scoping comments received were reviewed for substantive issues and concisely organized by the groups we received them from. These scoping comments and statements about how the BLM addressed those comments can be found by clicking on the "Documents" tab.
