Vegetation Management Activity Using Herbicides

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is initiating analysis of the site-specific effects of thirteen new herbicides authorized for use on BLM lands in the Prineville District. Currently, only four herbicides are approved for use on BLM lands in Oregon. Additional herbicides will give the District access to more tools to help control noxious weeds and non-native vegetation to improve the ecological health of our plant communities.

The BLM will be seeking public comments on this planning effort throughout the scoping period, which runs through July 15, 2011. Comments on the Prineville District EA can be submitted by mail to: Sarah A. Canham, District Weed Coordinator, Bureau of Land Management, Prineville District, 3050 NE Third Street, Prineville, Oregon 97754; by electronic mail (email) to BLM_OR_PR_Mail@blm.gov, Attn: "Herbicide EA"; by facsimile to 541-416-6798; or in person at the Prineville District office.
