Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Maintain and enhance wildlife habitat. a. Includes control and/or removal of non-native plant populations, and planting of native plant species.
2. Gather information on certain wildlife species and habitat use; this information will be helpful in directing enhancement activities. a. Survey and monitor certain wildlife species, including neotropical migratory songbirds and amphibians (i.e. red-legged frog), including habitat use, etc.
. b. Describe and document condition of habitat types used by species included in task a.
3. Continue interim custodial management and oversight of the area. a. Conduct weekly visits to site; monitor off-site activities which may affect on-site water quality, etc (i.e. quarry opeations, etc.).
1. b. Replace burned timber bridge in order to access east portion of property to conduct enhancement activities.

Section 7. Abstract


Burlington Bottoms was purchased in 1991 by the BPA to mitigate for wildlife habitat losses in the Willamette Basin of the lower Columbia River Basin. Overall project goals and objectives include: 1) the maintenance and enhancement of wildlife habitat typical of that found in the Willamette and lower Columbia River basins; 2) maintaining a diversity of fish and wildlife and fish and wildlife habitat typical of a riverine floodplain; 3) maintain or improve water quality; and 4) meet BPA’s obligation under provisions of the Pacific NW Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act of 1980. The methods used to control non-native invasive plant populations include the use of mechanical equipment such as a field mower in upland habitats, and manpower supplied by field crews to assist in the hand removal of non-native plant species. In addition, the installation of a water control structure is being considered in order to control water levels to flood out invasive non-native plant species such as reed canary grass. Coordination with other agencies, groups, etc. will also continue in order to share information and explore all avenues for new methods to carry out enhancement work. The expected outcome from the above proposed methods includes: 1)the enhancement of wildlife habitat, with a resulting increase in habitat units as projected in the habitat evaluation (HEP) completed in 1993 (see separate report titled “Burlington Bottoms Habitat Evaluation”, prepared by ODF&W, August, 1993); and 2) the site is maintained according to direction from the management plan. Enhancement projects began in 1996, with projects being carried out on a yearly basis, and are expected to be completed by fiscal year 2001, at which time operations and maintenance of the habitat would ensure the maintenance of existing habitat values over the lifetime of the project. Results of the enhancement activities will be evaluated and monitored by 1) conducting a modified HEP in order to analyze changes in habitat units over time, 2) analyzing species presence and occurrence both before, during, and after project implementation in response to habitat enhancement (methods used include point count surveys and monitoring and mist netting), and 3) evaluate cost effectiveness of comparative methodologies used during the implementation phase.

Reviews and Recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
May 13, 1998
1999 2000 2001
$ 58,000 $ 62,000 $ 65,000
Error in original project proposal. $58,000 is correct request

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
The project has been ongoing for 5 years, so they should describe what they have learned from past actions and how this will affect future actions. It is good that they mention monitoring for biodiversity, but they do not present specifics on results measured to date.
