Biological Outcomes of this project: Habitat protection and enhancement will be achieved by implementing restoration activities. Both upland and riparian habitat conditions will improve by altering existing agricultural and grazing practices. Control of noxious weeds and planting of native vegetation will help restore habitats to a more natural and diverse state, improving habitat conditions for many species of wildlife including T&E species and others of special concern. Water quality in the Grande Ronde and its tributaries will also improve as upland management practices are changed and as riparian vegetation is restored.
Biological Data: Habitat Evaluation Procedures (HEP) will be used to estimate pre- and post-enhancement habitat values. Benefits will be quantified in Habitat Units (HUs). The project is expected to generate approximately 700 protection and enhancement HUs within 5 years of implementation. Wildlife species surveys will be conducted as appropriate to determine response to restoration activity. For example, deer and elk inventories and fall chinook, bull trout and steelhead counts will be conducted by ODFW. Changes in upland and riparian vegetation over time will be monitored using photo points and line transects. Gap Analysis will be used to show the contribution of mitigation sites to landscape goals and objectives.

Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $ 42,302
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 42,302
Total FY 2001 budget request $ 0
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $142,302
% change from forecast -100.0%


Reason for change in estimated budget

The FY 2000 project proposal estimate for FY 2001 included $100,000 for continued acquisition or easement of lands near Wenaha WA. The acquisition component is now addressed in the OWC's FY 2001 programmatic project (Project No. 199705900). This Wenaha proposal will use FY 2000 carry forward dollars ($42,302) to accomplish first year management activities on acquired lands.


Reason for change in scope

In addition to reasons stated above, project delays occurred due to insufficient time and staffing to accomplish pre-acquisition project activities, local disputes which have resulted in previously targeted properties becoming unavailable, and higher project priorities within the OWC programmatic acquisition approach.
