On July 3, 2013, the Four Rivers Field Office issued the following documents related to OHV and vegetation management in the Big Willow Creek area, 14 miles northwest of Emmett, 12 miles east of Payette, Idaho:
A proposed decision to amend the Cascade Resource Management Plan designation of OHV use on 7,366 acres.  The decision would designate a 127-acre area as open to OHV use, a 1,619 -acre area as limited to designated trails, and a 5,620-acre area as closed to OHV use.  There is a 30-day protest period associated with the proposed decision (starting July 3, 2013, see proposed decision for more information).  A final decision to designate 9.3 mile of trails for OHV use and a final decision to implement vegetation treatments and construct five exclosures.  The final decisions each have a 30-day appeal period starting July 3, 2013 (see decisions for more information).  The decisions and supporting documents are under the document tab (left).
 
 
 

Big Willow Creek Travel Management Planning and Packard's Milkvetch Management

District/Boise: Field Office/Four Rivers

NEPA Type:

Environmental Assessment, DOI-BLM-ID-B010-2011-0048-EA

Proposed Action:

Packard's milkvetch was listed as a Candidate species under the Endangered Species Act in December 2010. The primary threats to the species identified in the listing include OHV activities, livestock trampling, invasive annuals, and fire. The plant has a relatively narrow distribution; therefore, the BLM has temporarily closed roads and trails in a 7,134 acre area adjacent to the populations. During the closure period, the BLM would work with interested publics to develop a travel management plan and other management actions to ensure the long term maintenance and enhancement of Packard's milkvetch habitat.

Location:

14 miles NW of Emmett, ID
