Section 7. Abstract


The goal of the Shoshone-Bannock Critical Ecosystem Reclamation, Recovery and Recharge Project is to restore the upper Mount Putnam drainage basin while empowering future Tribal leaders through a new program called EnviroCorps. Overgrazing, mining and off road vehicle usages have degraded this systems ability to support wildlife crucial to Indian ways. Through a series of phases, the EnviroCorps will reclaim and restore critical riparian areas, re-establish self-sustaining fish populations and re-introduce beaver populations (and impoundments) to recharge the ground water in the Mount Putnam area. While accomplishing the goals of this project, the young people will gain experiences/knowledge which aid in life direction, self-esteem and spiritual fulfillment. This approach to educating youth, while solving environmental problems, is a proven success in Salmon Corps. This project will involve four phases. Phase one includes conducting an EA, soliciting the educating the Tribal membership and developing the EnviroCorps program. The main components of phase one should be accomplished by the end of FY99. The second phase, restores the lowest order streams and springs of the basin on a priority basis. Phase three focuses on the riparian areas of the higher order streams. Phases two and three will be ongoing in nature, completion dates will vary. Priority phase two projects should be near completion by FY2000; priority phase three projects by FY2003.Phase four will establish a monitoring/maintenance program. EnviroCorp will assume these tasks under the direction of the Environmental Program. Project accomplishments and results will be reported in EcoNews.
