Biological Outcomes of this project: This proposal is based on a watershed management concept and will assist in equally protecting and enhancing both fish and wildlife resources throughout the watershed. It represents an opportunity to protect and enhance fish and wildlife habitat in the Lake Creek Watershed. Lake Creek drains approximately 23,117 acres and empties into Windy Bay at the southwest end of Lake Coeur d'Alene. The watershed provides valuable habitat for populations of black bear, moose, elk, white-tailed deer, muskrat, Canada geese, mallards, westslope cutthroat trout, bull trout, and many species of song birds as well as other non-target wildlife species. This project will target species used to assess the impacts of Albeni Falls Dam. This will include mallard duck, Canada goose, bald eagle, black-capped chickadee, white-tailed deer, muskrat, and yellow warbler. BPA will receive baseline protection credit for the habitat units provided on the wildlife portion of the project. All baseline habitat units will be maintained through the life of the project. The perpetual protection, enhancement, and maintenance of wetland and riparian habitat will provide immediate and long term benefits to the target species as well as additional non-target wildlife species through the provision of dependable habitat elements necessary for satisfying various life requirements for these species. In addition, project activities will provide immediate and long term benefit to a high priority westslope cutthroat trout population as well as assist in expanding the potential for Lake Creek to support historical bull trout populations through the improvement of both habitat and water quality. Expansion of the project area will contribute to this effort.
Biological Data: Baseline habitat evaluation efforts will be conducted during the 2001 field season. Habitat Evaluation Procedures will be used to determine the appropriate level of protection crediting for the target species identified above as well as to provide the baseline suitability indeces required for monitoring the effectiveness of land management practices. This baseline suitability index will then be used during routine habitat evaluation efforts to provide a picture of the effectiveness of enhancement efforts for both management and crediting purposes. Types of data to be collected during the HEP will be species dependent. Sample types include such information as canopy closure, canopy height, percent canopy cover of emergent herbaceous vegetation, percent distribution and average height of deciduous shrub canopy cover, etc.
