Section 7. Abstract


The CTWSRO is proposing to acquire the Pine Creek Ranch, thus allowing management of the entire Pine Creek watershed. Objectives would include: removal of livestock from damaged riparian and upland areas, fencing, noxious weed control and burning to remove juniper. BPA watershed funds in conjunction with BPA wildlife funds would be used for purchase and future out year funding. The project will benefit a rich and diverse group of fish, wildlife, and plant species. Pine Creek watershed supplies habitats for at least 36 animal and plant species that are listed as sensitive, threatened or endangered. Pine Creek provides spawning and rearing habitat for one of the few remaining native steelhead populations in the lower John Day River basin. The property also provides important wintering habitat for deer and elk. Nine of the target wildlife species identified in conjunction with the John Day project are present at Pine Creek. There is the potential to reintroduce several native wildlife species. Currently streams in the project area suffer from grazing impacts. Removal of livestock will allow the stream and riparian areas to stabilize over time. Upland enhancement activities will include noxious weed control on some farmed tracts and juniper removal through burning. Previous enhancement activities by GWEB indicates the watershed responds well to treatment. In the future “passive restoration”will be the direction used to manage this watershed. Since there is a wealth of baseline information on this project, some going back as far as 45 years, monitoring and evaluation should be easily accomplished.
