Finding of No Significant Impact DOI-BLM-OR-M040-2014-001-EA Planning in Progress
The Environmental Assessment for the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Box R Ranch (Rowlett) Land Exchange (OR 66137 FD/PT) (DOI-BLM-OR-M040-2014-001-EA) documented the environmental analysis conducted to complete the Box R Ranch land exchange authorized under Public Law 111-011, Section 1403 and exchange an isolated 46.39 acre tract of federal land in T. 40 S. R. 4 E., Section 5, Government Lot 2 for an approximate 40-acre parcel of non-federal land in T. 40 S., R. 4 E., Section 18, portions of Government Lots 2 and 3. This Finding of No Significant Impact documents the rationale for determining this land exchange decision is not a major Federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment, individually or cumulatively with other actions in the general area.

FONSI for the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Box R Land Exchange DOI-BLM-OR-M040-2014-001-EA-R Planning in Progress
The Finding of No Significant Impact determined that based on the EA, the proposed Box R Ranch (Rowlett) land exchange does not constitute a major federal action and will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment, individually or cumulatively with other actions in the general area. No environmental effects meet the definition of significance in context or intensity, as defined at 40 CFR 1508.27 and the analysis of effects documented in the EA has been completed within the context of multiple spatial and temporal scales and within the context of the Presidential Proclamation 7318 establishing the CSNM, the 2008 Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Record of Decision and Resource Management Plan, as amended in 2013 and the associated Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Proposed Management Plan/Final Environmental Impact Statement (2005). The anticipated effects are within the scope, type, and magnitude of effects anticipated and analyzed in those plans.
