Section 7. Abstract


This project is a continuing segment of the Tribes Hellsgate Winter Range Wildlife Mitigation Project. This is under our overall goal of mitigating for as much of the wildlife losses suffered from Grand Coulee and Chief Joseph Dam Projects as is possible.I It will add additional land to the existing mitigation base by acquiring management rights to adjacent or similar lands within the project area. Approximately 2,000 to 4,000 acres will be acquired depending on cost of agreements. These lands will enhance and buffer current efforts. They will be managed to protect, enhance and partially mitigate for habitat losses due to Hydropower developments as provided under the Northwest Power Act of 1980 and the 1994 FWP. Primary emphasis is on deer winter range and sharp-tailed grouse habitat. However, a large number of other species will receive benefit due to habitat protection and enhancement which will lead to overall increase bio-diversity.
