Section 7. Abstract


The Pend Oreille Wetlands Wildlife Mitigation project was proposed as partial mitigation for wildlife losses associated with the construction of Albeni Falls Dam. Approximately 600 acres of floodplain property were purchase by the BPA in 1992 (440 acres) and 1997 (160 acres) and are being managed by the Kalispel Tribe to benefit wildlife habitats and associated species. Seven habitat types exist on the project. These habitat types are; forested wetland, scrub-shrub wetland, emergent wetland, wet meadow or floodplain pasture, open water, upland forest, and riparian deciduous forest. These cover types represent Habitat Suitability Index (HSI) models for target species as part of Habitat Evaluation Procedures (HEP). This procedure is used to monitor and evaluate the habitat and as an accounting measure to credit the BPA for wildlife mitigation. Restoration and enhancement activities include riparian reforestation, bio-engineered bank stabilization, hardwood stand enhancement, water control structures/water level management, prescribed burning, native vegetation enhancement, coniferous stand improvements, pasture management, nesting island construction, and general operations and maintenance activities. Each habitat cover type relates to a target species used in HEP to determine losses and gains. The target species are Bald eagle (breeding and wintering), Black-capped Chickadee, Canada Goose, Mallard, muskrat, white-tailed deer, and Yellow Warbler. Other species/guilds benefiting include, reptilian and amphibian guilds, resident fish populations, black bear, neotropical migratory birds, and small mammal populations.

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
This proposal presents a good idea, but it gives no methodological detail to justify the quality of the work to be done. No rationale is given for the management decisions that would be made.
