The Field Office is proposing to conduct reforestation activities and harvest of the fire-damaged timber on approximately 940 acres. An environmental assessment (EA) is planned to analyze the potential effects of the proposed action. A project scoping report is currently available for public review and comment at: https://www.blm.gov/epl-front-office/eplanning/nepa/nepa_register.do
Public comments on the proposal are most useful if received by December 10, 2012. Written comments may be submitted to the BLM Cottonwood Field Office addressed to the attention of Zach Peterson at 1 Butte Road, Cottonwood, ID 83522 or sent electronically to BLM_ID_SheepSalvage@blm.gov.
For additional information on the proposed project, please contact BLM Forester Zach Peterson at (208) 962-3594.
