Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Protect amd enhance critical riparian habitat as it creates fish and wildlife habitat. a. Coordinate with Cordinated Resource Management (CRM) and private landowners to protect critical habitat from grazing through the construction of fence.
1. b. Construct stream and riparian protection fence.
1. c. Operation and maintenance of riparian fence.
2. Enhance bank stability within Lolo Creek watershed, starting with tributaries. a. Coordinate with CRM to implement bank stabilization techniques.
2. b. Develop permit package.
2. c. Purchase materials for bank stabilization, such as erosion control matting and seed.
2. d. Implement bank stabilization techniques.
3. Restore riparian plant communities (native plants and trees) to enhance fish and wildlife habitat, reduce sediment delivery to stream, stabilize stream banks, and improve water quality. a. Evaluate re-vegetation design based on the management plan/watershed assessment.
3. b. Collect cuttings and seed from local source.
3. c. Grow seeds and store cuttings in cold storage.
3. d. Purchase additional container seedlings.
3. e. Plant cuttings and container seedlings in riparian zone areas in need of habitat and stabilization.
4. Monitor and evaluate success of fence in excluding cattle from grazing effects on riparian habitat. a. Evaluate over-winter survival of fence during early spring months by walking the entire fence line.
4. b. Repair any damaged or destroyed sections of fence.
5. Monitor and evaluate success of road obliteration. a. Coordinate with Clearwater National Forest (CNF) to perform monitoring and evaluation of road obliteration activities.
5. b. Continue use of Challenge Cost Share Agreement, and make annual revisions, as needed.
5. c. Walk all obliterated roads to measure vegetation growth, stabilization, and new failures.
5. d. Analyse all data within Lolo Creek Watershed relating to road obliteration including, but not limited to sediment, cobble embeddedness, and water quality, through stream surveys.
6. Manage project to effectively accomplish project goals. a. Develop project time schedules
6. b. Update and communicate with all entities involved in Cordinated Resource Management (CRM) group.
6. c. Share information with all interested parties.
6. d. Prepare quarterly and annual reports.
