The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comment on an environmental assessment analyzing forage allocations for livestock grazing and proposed wild horse population limits on public land managed by the Surprise Field office in far northwest Nevada.

The EA, which analyzes the effects of five management alternatives, is available online at www.blm.gov/ca/surprise, or by contacting the Surprise Field Office at (530) 279-6101. Email requests should be sent to ssurian@blm.gov. Please submit written comments to Surprise Field Office, PO Box 460, Cedarville, CA 96104 or by email at casrpubcom@blm.gov by September 27th, 2013

 
 
 

The EA analyzes five alternatives that would establish the amount of forage available to cattle, and an appropriate management level for wild horses in the 44,480-acre Massacre Lakes Livestock Grazing Allotment and the 39,888-acre Massacre Lakes Wild Horse Herd Management Area that lies within the grazing allotment boundaries. The area is about 20 miles east of Cedarville, Calif.

Alternatives analyzed include a BLM proposed action, recommendations developed by the Modoc-Washoe Experimental Stewardship Steering Committee, and an alternative proposed by wild horse advocates. The EA also analyzes the effects of making no changes in current management, and eliminating livestock grazing.
