1These ACEC nominations were received between the Draft and Final RMP. Through an ACEC screening process it was determined they qualify as potential ACEC.

Because they have not received the required public review, they will be considered as potential ACEC/EEA until a RMP ammendment is implemented or until a new planning process occurs. Areas will receive interim management where necessary to protect the relevant and important values until such a time as designation is possible.

2Some removal of conifers and hardwoods may occur in order to maintain the prairie conditions for which these areas were nominated.
3
Any potential timber harvest within these areas will be permitted only if such actions are consistent with maintaining or enhancing the primary values of the ACEC nomination areas.
4
See OHV Appendix F for further discussion. Hult Marsh and Lake Creek ACEC Limited designated roads.
5
The Low Elevation Headwaters of the McKenzie River Potential ACEC will need further analysis during the OHV planning process before any designation can be assigned to provide interim management for this area.
