Leonas Little Blue Butterfly Habitat Restoration
This project will expand habitat for Leonas Little Blue Butterfly (a region 6 sensitive species) by removing encroaching lodgepole pine, and allowing more light to its sole host plant, spurry buckwheat.
Oatman Restoration Project
This project addresses ecosystem restoration in coniferous forest, meadows, riparian areas, aspen stands and other plant communities while reducing high fuel levels and high road densities, and providing forest products.
South Warner Aspen
Enhance and restore aspen stands by removing encroaching conifers through non-commercial thinning along with application of prescribed fire as deemed necessary.

Fort Vegetation Management Project
Map 5. Proposed activities include precommercial thinning, commercial thinning, slashbusting, hand treatments, and prescribed fire to increase forest health, and reduce risk of high intensity willdfire event on approximately 6886 acres.
Red Knight Restoration Project
Would maintain and enhance a resilient forest habitat by developing spatial patterns, summer forage, tree densities, and forest composition and structure more typical of a resilient, fire-adapted forest.
Booth-Drews Gap Fuels Reduction Project
In conjunction with an adjacent Oregon Department of Forestry project in the area of Booth State Park the Forest Service proposes to implement understory thinning and prescribed fire treatments within a 160 acre parcel of National Forest
Boundary Prescribed Underburn
Prescribed initial & reentry underburning of 9000 acres to reduce fuel profiles and to bring fire regime condition class to within the estimated historical range of variability during a specifically defined reference period (FRCC 1).
Swamp Creek and Mill Flat Grazing Allotments Project
This area has been brought forward for analysis at this time in order to comply with the Rescission Act of 1995, which requires the Forest Service to establish and adhere to a schedule for completion of NEPA analyses and decisions on all allotments.
