The Lost Creek - Boulder Creek Landscape Restoration Project is part of the Payette National Forest's Weiser Little Salmon Headwaters Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration (CFLR) Project, one of ten nationally selected projects in the CFLR Program in 2012.
The proposed project area encompasses approximately 80,000 acres on the New Meadows Ranger District of the Payette National Forest, and is located approximately 10 miles north and west of New Meadows, Idaho in Boulder Creek, a tributary to the Little Salmon, and in the headwaters of the Weiser River and the West Fork of the Weiser River.
This project is based in part on recommendations provided by the Payette Forest Coalition (PFC). PFC is a collaborative group formed under the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 (PL 111 - 11) and whose recommendations are structured to meet intent of the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Act (CFLRA). PFC members represent stakeholders from a broad range of interests including the environmental community, timber industry, recreational groups, and state and county government. Purpose of the CFLR Program is to encourage the collaborative, science-based ecosystem restoration of priority forest landscapes. To learn more about the PFC visit their website at Spatial Interest.
