NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-M000-2012-0001-EA  FONSI/Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 9/23/2014
Summary: This is a draft Decision Record of the Cook's Lomatium Habitat Management Project. This project would implement the Integrated Vegetation Management Project (IVMP) in the Josephine Creek -- Illinois River, East Fork Illinois River, and West Fork Illinois River watersheds on the Grants Pass Resource Area. Project activities include vegetation treatments in 89 acres of grasslands/shrublands and 91 acres of woodlands/forest to maintain or improve habitat for Cook's lomatium, a plant federally listed as Endangered. Additionally, seven barriers would be constructed out of fence or rocks to prevent resource damage from unauthorized off-road vehicle traffic. The Draft Decision is open for a 15 day public comment period beginning on September 24, 2014 and ending on October 9, 2014. Comments will be accepted in hard copy or electronic form and should be sent to the address below or to Ferris Fisher at ffisher@blm.gov.

Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is preparing an Integrated Vegetation Management Programmatic (IVMP) Environmental Assessment for Medford District BLM lands. The proposed project would lie within the Medford District which covers approximately 860,000 acres. The primary purpose of using this Integrated Vegetation Management (IVM) approach is to develop a program of work that first, contributes to healthy and resilient forest landscapes and species conservation, and secondarily provides a variety of forest products to contribute to the sustainability of local communities and industries. To achieve these goals, the District has embarked on a District-wide environmental assessment of IVM that will utilize multiple contract and sales options, including timber sales, stewardship and service contracts, and other agreements. It is anticipated that integrated vegetation management treatments could occur on up to 5,000 acres each year for the next five (5) years.
