Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Current and Recent Projects
The proposed Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP) Sign Project proposes to replace existing signs and install new, thematic and interpretive signs throughout the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.
The proposed action is to replace the existing stream crossing structures with a bridge within the right-of-way where Kueffler Road (FSR 1400)crosses the East Fork Woodard Creek, providing aquatic organism passage and restoring the natural channel.
The Forest Service is proposing geotechnical services which would involve excavation of up to four test pits within the existing Herman Creek campground and trailhead area.
This project would protect an ecologically important remnant stand of old-growth ponderosa pine. Initial treatment: undergrowth thinning, small tree removal, fuel manipulation and snag creation. Outyear treatments: pile burning and broadcast burning.
Replacement of the existing restroom and reduce deferred maintenance at the site. Along with the restroom replacement project will replace the existing kiosk, install a fee tube for collection of recreation use fees, and improve accessibility.
Prescribes treatments for invasive plants on Mt. Hood NF and Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area in Oregon on approx. 13,000 acres (208 sites) with a combination of treatments including herbicide, manual, mechanical and cultural (goat grazing).
