Section 7. Abstract


The Burns Paiute Tribe is proposing to acquire the Denny Jones Ranch in Juntura, Oregon. This acquisition would allow the Tribe as well as other state and federal agencies to manage 6700 acres of richly diverse property on the Malheur River. The ranch holds deed to ~ 7 miles of the Malheur River which includes 328 acres of 1888 water rights and leases 21,000 acres of BLM and 4000 acres of state land. The project will benefit a diverse population of fish, wildlife and vegetation species. Objectives would include: removal of cattle from damaged riparian, wetlands and upland areas, fencing, riparian restoration and enhancement, increase wildlife use and reestablish historical home range for migratory species, weed control and maximize water quality. Currently, the ranch is in very poor condition. The present land practices contributes to the degradation of land and water quality. According to federal and state officials, the Malheur River is highly impacted by the current grazing practices.
