Document Publish Date: 8/12/2015
Summary: Since the Myrtle Creek Harvest Plan EA was issued, surveys for red tree voles have been completed. The Myrtle Creek Harvest Plan was revised because, subsequent to completed surveys, the BLM evaluated the use of non-high priority site designation in six locations (units 28-4-9A, 28-4-9B, 28-4-10A, 28-4-10B, 28-4-17B, and 28-5-27A). The non-high priority site designation evaluation has been added to the EA as Appendix F and the evaluation is summarized on pages 83-84 of this Revised EA. The Myrtle Creek Harvest Plan Environmental Assessment considers two action alternatives that would apply silvicultural treatments to 2,012 acres. The proposed action includes thinning, density management and variable retention harvest in the Matrix and associated Riparian Reserves land use allocations on BLM-administered lands within T. 28 S., R. 2 W.; T. 28 S., R. 3 W.; T. 28 S., R. 4 W.; T. 28 S., R. 5 W.; T. 29 S., R. 2 W.; T. 29 S., R. 3 W.; T. 29 S., R. 4 W.
