Environmental Assessment OR-030-07-004 Project Under Implementation
Gathering and removal of excess wild horses from the Jackies Butte Herd Management Area is necessary to maintain a thriving natural ecological balance which protects public land resources from deterioration. Both actions are consistent with necessary population controls that maintain appropriate management levels established in the Southeastern Oregon Resource Management Plan (SEORMP, 2002). Recent monitoring has indicated heavy utilization of key vegetative species in riparian zones along a perennial stream, spring, and reservoirs. Vegetation and soils have been extremely stressed in the summer when horses concentrate on the few available water sources.
