Olympic National Forest All Units
Lakebed Sediment Core Sampling
Oregon State Univsity paleoearthquake research entails lake sediment core sampling in 4 lakes beds on the Olympic National Forest: Beaver Lk, Lena Lk, Spider Lk, Jefferson Lk. Cores are 2.5 in. wide and up to 10 meters deep.
Quinault Admin Site Waterline Repair/Replacement
We will dig an 18-24" deep trench using a ditch witch, replace failed water lines throughout the compound, install 7 new water sub meters, and coordinate relocation of the compound's main water meter.
Sitkum Commercial Thinning
Proposal to commercially thin 35 to 80 year old second growth forest stands in the Sitkum/South Fork Calawah watersheds to accelerate development of late-successional forest conditions.
Smithsonian Institute Research Permit
The SMITHSONIAN requests reauthorization of their avian research permit to study the effects of dams on terrestrial avian through sampling five songbirds: American dipper, song sparrow, Pacific wren, Townsends warblers and warbling vireo.
Hood Canal Ranger District
FSR 2345-100 Spur Easement Exchange
Proposal to exchange easements with Green Diamond Resource Company for segments approximately 900 feet long on NFS land and 1,550 feet long on GDRC land, to provide long-term access to the lands of both parties.
Upper South Fork Skokomish Vegetation Management Project
This is a forested landscape restoration project - it is not focused
primarily on economical timber harvest units. The project as a whole must be economically viable, but the economics of individual project elements may vary.
Pacific Ranger District South
East Fork Humptulips Vegetation Management
Proposal to commercially thin approximately 3,300 acres of young, previously managed forest stands in the East Fork Humptulips watershed, on the Pacific Ranger District.
Falls Creek Campground Kiosk Removal and Replacement
The existing information kiosk and fee station were constructed in the 1950s and are in poor structural condition. The structure would be removed and replaced with a three-panel information kiosk which would also serve as the campground fee station.
Norwood Structures Removal
The project would remove and dispose of two open-sided, wooden trailer shed structures and 9 storage sheds. These structures are in poor condition and a safety hazard and were previously part of the administrative residential site that is unoccupied.
Queets Commercial Thinning
Approximately 5,000 acres would be commercially thinned using variable-density thinning. The purpose of the project is to restore and improve late-successional habitat conditions, generate economic activity, and provide jobs in the local area.
The proposed activities will add the elements of diversity lacking in the initial Rail project through the incorporation of heavy thins, skips and gaps (variable density thinning or VDT) to restore old-growth forest characteristics.
Quilcene Ranger District
Dosewallips Engineered Log Jams
The project would design and install log jam structures on NF lands to enhance density and distribution of natural large woody debris in the Dosewallips River. Heavy equipment would construct log jams, helicopters may be used to transport trees.
Quilcene Administrative Site Maintenance
Improve helicopter safety and address maintenance needs to buildings and infrastructure at the Quilcene administrative site. This can be achieved primarily through management of the vegetation and fuels on site.
Rocky Brook Hydroelectric Permit Renewal
Rocky Brook Hydroelectric L.P. is seeking a new 20-year special use permit for their existing facilities. The project diverts up to 40 cubic feet per second (cfs) from Rocky Brook, with a minimum in-stream flow of 5 cfs.
Trapper Creek Aquatic Organism Passage
The existing culvert on FSR 2850 at the Trapper Creek crossing (MP 0.8), would be replaced with a structure designed to allow passage for all aquatic organisms. Structures made of rock and wood may be incorporated in the design.
Shelton Ranger District
Soleduck Ranger District
Calawah OHV Project
The proposed action is the development of an Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) trail system and staging area in the Bonidu area within the North Fork Calawah watershed. The proposal would provide about 21.1 miles of interlinking trails.
Calawah Watershed Road Decommissioning
The proposed project would decommission or decommission and convert to trail approximately 36 miles of existing classified roads in the Calawah Watershed.
Interfor Tailhold Authorization
Interfor has requested a special use authorization to tie onto five trees or stumps on Kugel Ridge (off of FS Road 2929) adjacent to Kugel Den Timber Sale on DNR land. The selected trees would be left on site and standing.
