Boise National Forest Plan Monitoring Transition
The 2012 Planning Rule requires that Forest Plan monitoring plans include monitoring questions and associated indicators that inform the management of the plan resources in the area and whether management is being effective in maintaining and achieving progress toward desired conditions or objectives for the plan area. Monitoring questions and associated indicators are based on one or more desired condition, objective, or other plan component. Not every plan component needs to have a corresponding monitoring question. To meet the minimum requirements of the 2012 Planning Rule, monitoring plans must address eight specific items identified in [36 CFR 219.12(a)(5)].
French Hazard WUI
Project objectives are to create or enhance defensible space for suppression resources, restore vegetative conditions more reflective of fire-adapted ecosystems, reduce hazardous fuels, and minimizing risks to public health and safety.
Hazel #1 Minerals Plan of Operations Project
The purpose of this analysis is to provide for approval of a Plan of Operations to explore for locatable minerals on an existing mining claim. The proponent is proposing to excavate five test holes for gold.
Lowman WUI Corridor
This project proposes hazardous fuel reduction and restoration treatments on 1,900 acres within the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). Proposed treatments include both prescribed fire and mechanical understory thinning.
The Saint Minerals Proposed Plan of Operations Project
The purpose of this analysis is to provide for approval of a Plan of Operations to explore for locatable minerals on an existing mining claim. The proponent is proposing to excavate 50' x 50' exploration pits within a 3/4 acre area.
Bogus Basin Forest Health Project
This project would manage forest structure and species composition to improve the resiliency of the forest landscape and recover from uncharacteristic insect and disease disturbance and remove hazard trees on about 2,800 acres of NFS lands.
Boise Basin Experimental Forest Project
The Boise Basin Experimental Forest Project would conduct vegetation management and prescribed fire activities in the Boise Basin Experimental Forest as part of a Rocky Mountain Research Station research project.
Carlin Mineral Exploration Project
The proposal is to drill/blast a quartz vein and remove approximately 30-40 tons of mineral material to determine if enough gold is present to further develop the project. This is a locatable minerals project regulated under 36 CFR 228A.
Featherville Sheep and Goat Allotment
This project will evaluate current livestock management on the Featherville Sheep and Goat (S&G) Allotment and proposes to authorize continued livestock grazing on approximately 142,800 acres of National Forest System land.
Heart of Gold Minerals Project
The purpose of this analysis is to provide for approval of a Plan of Operations to explore for locatable minerals. The proponent proposes to conduct placer exploration using mechanized equipment adjacent to Grimes Creek.
Henry Clay Mineral Project
The proponent proposes to conduct minerals exploration activities to acquire detailed geologic data within the Henry Clay mineral claims group to determine the extent of the mineral resources.
High Valley Integrated Restoration Project
Manage forest to accelerate development of large, ponderosa pine to support wildlife habitat, increase resilience to un-natural disturbance, reduce hazardous fuels, improve watershed function, and provide wood products to support local economies.
Ola A Range Project
This project proposes to authorize continued livestock grazing on the Ola A Cattle and Horse Allotment.
B and M Plan of Operations
The purpose of the proposed project is to provide approval of a Plan of Operations to explore for locatable minerals, per Federal mining regulations 36 CFR 228, subpart A. Three test pits would be excavated to test for gold and reclaimed.
Daniels Creek - Dry Creek Trail Additions
This project proposes to add about 4 miles of existing trails on NFS and BLM lands to the Ridges to Rivers Trail System. Land easements have recently been acquired allowing these existing trails to be added to the trail system(s).
Keller Outfitter and Guide Special Use Permit
Issuance of a 10-yr special use permit to outfit and guide predator hunting for wolf, cougar and bear. Keller Outfitter and Guides have purchased a portion of Allred Adventures Outfitter and Guide area and a new special use permit is required.
579 Roadside Hazard Project
All dead and imminently dead large trees greater than or equal to 7 inches dbh within 160 feet of National Forest System (NFS) road 579 would be cut and removed. All trees less than 7 inches dbh would be felled and burned.
Wapiti Blue Stewardship Project
4,600 ac of treatments designed for veg. restoration and fuel reduction (including defensible space around Wapiti, Bear & Camp Cr summer homes and Hanging Valley) and 6 mi of unclass. rd decom
