Section 7. Abstract


This proposal is the Colville Tribes Umbrella Project, Hellsgate Big Game Winter Range Mitigation Project. Our overall project goal is to mitigate for as much of the wildlife losses suffered from Grand Coulee and Chief Joseph Dam projects as is possible. The Hellsgate Project began in 1993 with the acquisition of 4,814 acres of land. It has grown since then to about 18,512 acres. These lands are being managed to protect, mitigate, and enhance the wildlife habitat values they contain. Habitat and management activities are being monitored and evaluated to determine the degree those objectives are being met. Acquisition and management rights to additional lands are being pursued to meet our mitigation goal.
