Project: Table Rocks Management Plan

Project Status: Planning in Progress
Office Location: Medford
Resource Area: Butte Falls
NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-M050-2013-0011-EA  Scoping Letter

Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) are beginning the analysis process for a plan amendment to the Medford District Resource Management Plan (RMP) for the Table Rocks Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). The RMP amendment would revise the existing boundary of the Table Rocks ACEC to designate 1,084 acres acquired by the BLM as ACEC lands, and remove ACEC designation from a 0.9-acre gravel area currently used for overflow parking that does not contain ACEC resources. The proposed expanded ACEC boundary will contain lands managed by the BLM, TNC, and private landowners; however, the ACEC designation and BLM management would be limited to BLM-managed lands only. Expanding the ACEC boundary to encompass a larger area would create additional opportunities for the BLM to obtain funding for monitoring, restoration, recreation development, or acquiring additional parcels from willing sellers. Acquiring additional parcels would help disperse use and reduce the impacts to sensitive resources on the tops of both Upper and Lower Table Rocks.
