Proposed action to achieve the objective(s) The November 2008 budget request for Capitol funds for the Falt Top Ranch Conservation Easement was approved for $3,500,000. The 2008 budget request did not included additional funds for pre-acquisition activities. The coast share partner, The Nature Conservancy (TNC), has conducted the pre-acquisition activiies and BPA has conducted the appriaisal review, BPA has started removing the cost for their internal review from the projects funds. $24,000 was removed for BPA internal review. The project currently has $16,000 of the original $40,000 in pre-acquisition funds remaining. The estimated preacquisition costs for TNC is $90,000. The Idaho Dept of Fish and Game's share of those pre-acquisition costs is approximately $66,000. $50,000 is needed to cover the reamining pre-acquisition cost.

Does not implementing this modification jeopardize the ability to achieve existing biological objectives of this project, as well as other projects? No
