Bridgeport Southwest Rangeland Project
Proposal is to convert 4 sheep allotments into 2 Cattle allotments and authorize cattle grazing in these two allotments. Two other sheep allotments will also be closed under this project.
Black Jack Project
The exploration project will utilize three drill sites from which multiple drill holes will be drilled. The use of existing roads and approximately 3,500 feet of road maintenance will be required.
Drill boreholes using reverse-circulation or core methods to expected depths of 500-1,500 ft at up to 15 sites and construct up to 5,000 ft of new, temporary road. The drill pads and new roads would be recontoured and seeded upon project completion.
California Integrated Weed Management
The proposed action includes the development and implementation of an Integrated Weed Management System (IWMS) to treat noxious and invasive weeds on Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest System Lands in California.
Currant-Ellison Watershed Restoration Project
The purpose of this project is to restore and maintain healthy and resilient watersheds, vegetation communities, wildlife habitats and to reduce fuels and wildfire risks particularly near private lands, structures and other critical resources.
Golden Brew Exploration
Drill one or more boreholes at 4 sites and construct about 600 feet of new temporary road. Existing roads and 5,000 feet of overland travel will provide access.
Humboldt - Toiyabe NF Wilderness Plans
Development of Wilderness Management Plans for Santa Rosa - Paradise Peak, Alta Toquima, Arc Dome and Table Mountain Wilderness areas and amendments to Humboldt National Forest LRMP and Toiyabe National Forest LRMP.
Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest Plan Monitoring Transition
The new plan monitoring rule requires that 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. The responsible official should consider the series of questions in the draft LMP directive FSH 1909.12 Chapter 30, section 32.11 to identify which components require monitoring questions in order to effectively inform the Land and Resource Management Plan. 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).
Leviathan-Loope Rangeland Project
Reauthorize grazing on the Leviathan and Campbell-Loope Sheep and Goat allotments and close 3 vacant cattle and horse allotments: Mud Lake, Barber, and Double Springs.
Long Valley Creek Fence Exclosure Project
This project proposes to construct an exclosure to protect a cultural site. The fence will be constructed to Forest Service standards. It will be a 4 strand fence. Project was originally part of the 2013 Range Rescission Implementation project.
Monte Cristo Territory Management Plan pdate
The Forest Service will update the Monte Cristo Wild Horse and Burro Territory Management Plan to include strategies to maintain the herd into the future at AML and to compliment the BLM's management of the Pancake Wild Horse and Burro Complex.
Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe - Atoma Area Project
The Forest Service proposes to amend the Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe special use permit to authorize commercial downhill skiing in the Atoma area and construction of a snowmaking water impoundment on the westernmost portion of the permit boundary
Rough Creek Sage-Grouse Habitat Improvement Project
This project proposes to improve approximately 15,900 acres of sage-grouse habitat by reducing pinyon-juniper cover in the project area, thus increasing habitat connectivity, decreasing available perches for predators, and reducing wildfire risk.
Eastern Sierra ATV & UTV Jamboree
This is a ATV & UTV motorcycle touring type of ride on National Forest System lands. It will take place on approved motor vehicle routes as identified in the approved Motor Vehicle Use Maps
Pine Grove - Lincoln Gold Project
Project involves drilling of 5 ground water monitoring wells, 9 condemnation drill holes, 6 geotechnical augur holes, and excavation of 9 test pits to determine soil properties.
Reese River Diversion Stabilization Project
This project would replace an existing non-functional diversion structure with a new structure that will function as a diversion for irrigation. The proposal would also close an existing access road that enters the Arc Dome Wilderness.
Sierra Trail Dogs 250 Dual Sport
This is a motorcyle touring type of ride on National Forest System Lands. It will take place on approved motor vehicle routes as identified in the approved Motor Vehicle Use Maps
Swauger Creek Fuels Reduction Project
The purpose for this project is to restore stand health, reduce wildfire severity, promote under story regeneration in sage-steppe, mountain shrub, mixed conifer, and aspen communities and imrpove wildlife habitat and help create defensiable space.
2013 Range Rescission Implementation
Project would build key fences to better control and rotate livestock, reducing impacts on riparian areas. This project is being replaced by separate analyses approved under decision memos.
Antelope Restoration Project
USFS proposal to restore stand health, reduce wildfire severity, and promote understory regeneration in sage-steppe, mtn shrub communities . Prescribed fire and mechanical treatments would be applied within approximately 65,000 acre project boundary
Nexus Walker Ridge Mineral Exploration Project
Nexus Gold Corp proposes a small scale drilling program (less than one year) at their Walker Ridge Project site in Elko County, NV. The program is anticipated to create approximately 4 acres of surface disturbance.
PMMR Clay Mine Expansion
Proponent proposes to expand the existing clay mine. One pit would be expanded and one new pit developed. clay would be trucked off forest to a rail siding in Wabuska.
