Objectives

Provide for livestock grazing in an environmentally sensitive manner consistent with other objectives and land use allocations.

Provide for rangeland improvement projects and management practices consistent with other objectives and land use allocations.

Land Use Allocations

Where livestock grazing is authorized through a grazing lease, the area of use is defined by the grazing lease.

Management Actions/Direction - Riparian Reserves

Through a planning and environmental analysis process appropriate to the action, adjust or eliminate grazing practices that retard or prevent attainment of Aquatic Conservation Strategy objectives.

Locate new livestock handling and/or management facilities outside Riparian Reserves. For existing livestock handling facilities inside Riparian Reserves, ensure that Aquatic Conservation Strategy objectives are met. Where these objectives cannot be met, require relocation or removal of such facilities.

Limit livestock trailing, bedding, watering, loading, and other handling efforts to those areas and times that will ensure Aquatic Conservation Strategy objectives are met.

Management Actions/Direction - Late-Successional Reserves

In coordination with wildlife and fish biologists, implement range-related management activities that do not adversely affect late-successional habitat.

Through a planning and environmental analysis process appropriate to the action, adjust or eliminate grazing practices that retard or prevent attainment of Late-Successional Reserve objectives.

Evaluate effects of existing and proposed livestock management and handling facilities in Late-Successional Reserves to determine if reserve objectives are met. Where objectives cannot be met, relocate livestock management and/or handling facilities.

Management Actions/Direction - All Land Use Allocations

Apply the management actions/direction in the Special Status and SEIS Special Attention Species Habitat section.
