Relevant RPAs based upon NMFS & BPA Review

NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal


Biological Outcomes of this project: The Northeast Oregon Wildlife Project is expected to provide long-term habitat for a diversity of wildlife species including target species (California quail, chuckar, western meadowlark, downey woodpecker, hairy woodpecker, blue grouse, mule deer, river otter, song sparrow, and yellow warbler) identified in the BPA contract. Management actions are aimed at providing quality plant communities which will support optimal levels of desirable wildlife species. The removal and exclusion of livestock grazing should improve wildlife habitat by reducing soil disturbance, promoting healthy plant communities and protecting streamside vegetation. Control of noxious weeds will also improve wildlife habitat by protecting native plant communities and preserving plant diversity.
Biological Data: An HEP analysis initiated during FY 2000 will be used to establish a baseline to measure the success of current and future management actions. Habitat values will be re-calculated over time to measure changes in habitat quality as a result of management actions. Additionally, long-term monitoring of breeding birds, amphibians, weed populations, water quality, and human activities will provide information critical to evaluating the success of the project. The NPT has already gathered monitoring data for breeding birds, amphibians, and weed populations for FY 1999 and is expected to continue those efforts in FY 2000. Additional monitoring protocols will be established through the Management Plan, scheduled to be completed in FY 2001. Once monitoring protocols and schedules have been approved, additional funding will be required to implement the monitoring plan beginning in FY 2002.
